| Help Wanted - Wood Type |                  | |Steve Bowen (10768)

Iam researching a wood type
   manufacturer called H.M. Sellers & Co
   of 336a Shalesmoor, Sheffield
   I have attached a copy of their
specimen catalogue cover.

   I have a large collection of their wood
type but can find little information about
the company: the only article I have
found in the archives was regarding a
fire they had in their factory in 1939, but
I understand they were still trading in the
1960s.

   I am hoping other members may have
memories, information or even copies of
catalogues and other ephemera to help
me put together more information about
this company. They can contact me with
any information at steve@yorkletterpress.
