Ginn and Company (Athenaeum Press) - 1925

A film from the silent movie era about a book manufacturing at a major textbook publishing house, Ginn and Company. The film shows large-scale letterpress printing and bookbinding from their Athenaeum Press. Found in the Moviecraft archive.
The first nine minutes are slow so you can skip to the good parts:
The typesetting/engraving section begins at 09:12.
The letterpress printing section begins at 14:52.
The bookbinding section begins at 16:13.
