vintoys, your book press appears to be a linen press.I’m
guessing the counter is from a Goss flatbed
I agree with James. It is a linen press and has nothing to do with printing. It does not have the structural strength needed to create a decent impression. One could easily break it if they tried that.
When linens were ironed and folded they were place in this aparatus to keep them “pressed.”
Thank you very much.
