One-line specimen book for American Type Founders letterpress printing type. Printing code: TY-131 40M656LC, which identifies it as dating from June 1956. This particular copy has with it an insert which contains on one side an ATF "Handy Order Blank, ATF form TY-134 50M756LC, and on the other side an advertisement for Perfection Type, Inc. (Minneapolis) in their capacity as an authorized ATF type dealer. (N.B., a fold-over tab in this insert had glued itself shut with age and since it could not be opened without risk of damage to the original I've left it closed.) Thanks are due to Schuyler Shipley of Skyline Type Foundry (http://www.skylinetype.com/ )for making this available.
