Press ID

What sort of a press would this be (other than an upside-down one)?

“Bell and Campbell Printing Press Mfg. Co.” is in the ad; it doesn’t look like a country, more like a “complete”, take a look at page 35 of Sterne’s “A catalogue of 19th century printing presses”.

I think you will find it is a “Country” press, more likely the picture on page 31 of Sterne than page 33.

I have James Moran’s Printing Presses, History & Development from the 15th Century to Modern Times. I see a few in there that look similar.
