Two Adana HQ Presses & type in Newark, NJ

BOTH PRESSES HAVE BEEN SOLD. Thanks everyone for your interest.

For sale are two Adana Horizontal Quartos (a/k/a Adana HQ or QH). 6”x9” beds. Rollers in good shape and both working. I’m moving across the country and can’t justify taking them with me given how much I’ve used them over the past few years.

Local pick only—I have no ability to ship.

The first for sale, on the right in the photos, was purchased about a decade ago from the widow of a hobby printer in Ossining, NY. Rollers in good condition and press works well. It comes with the two dark-brown 2/3 cabinets which are filled with various founts of type, miscellaneous cuts, furniture, etc. The cases are presently shrink-wrapped from my last house move. Asking $800 for everything.

The second press, on the left in the photos, is disassembled for hand inking but can be reassembled easily. Rollers are in good condition and the press works well. This press will come with the taller rolling work table pictured, as well as with the full and 2/3 type cases shown, which have founts of 12 & 14 pt Centaur, 12 & 14 pt Arrighi, 12 pt Goudy Old Style (original ATF cast type), Gills Sans Titling in 14 to 36 pt and 36 pt Delphi Open Titling. Again, all the cases are shrink-wrapped at present. Asking $800 for the lot.

The first person to purchase one will also receive various other goodies, such as a small paper cutter, some boxed blank stationery and paper, NOS composing sticks etc.

Please contact me if you are interested, and a reminder that this sale is for local pick up ONLY, I honestly can’t ship anywhere.
