About this deal

There was a pair of tweezers for handling the fiddly letters, it was easy losing some of the letters as they fell on the floor and bounced away. By the early 1930s a slab-serif typeface with upper and lower-case characters had been introduced and more expensive sets included printing blocks showing a clown, juggler, and Native American Chief and farm or zoo animals. Cowan DeGroot sold the John Bull trademark to Dekkertoys of Peterborough in the late 1980s, but the famous printing sets are no longer available.

The Charter Stamp Company moved several times in their early years of trading, eventually settling at 57 Southwark Street, London SE1, where the sets were also produced. The export market was important as a source of income, but the cost of producing new moulds for foreign territories was prohibitive. A couple of days after, I was looking through some images of my friend Wayne’s recent cultural visit to Naples, Herculaneum and Vesuvius.Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. In the late 1970s costly plastic injection-moulding equipment was purchased for soft polymers, although the old vulcanised rubber system was retained for foreign language sets. Load it up with ink on your ink pad, then carefully press it against a piece of paper, and a few words at a time you were in a position to print an entire book.

I have to confess I was better at losing the bits than I was at printing anything and rather quickly lost interest. I have a John Bull printing set which I intend to use to make labels and inlays for cassettes and open reels (which I hope qualifies it for this thread). I just gave away a box of 1950 Wireless World's bought with my pocket money as a kid, they were stamped with my name and address with my 'John Bull' printing outfit. We are also home to the Bridewell Theatre, which has been providing a unique space for the performing arts since 1993. A special wooden type holder accommodated two lines of type, held in place with a thin wooden wedge and spaces were provided for use between words.The incorporation paperwork for the company is dated 23rd March 1922 and states that the company was founded “to carry on business as manufacturers and dealers in stamps and dies, toys, stationers’ sundries…and articles of any description”.
