This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...and illustrations are used, these should be properly stored in cabinets or on pigeon-holed shelving. All should be indexed and recorded in books made for this special purpose. Merely to enter the title or name of the electros is hardly sufficient. Titles frequently conflict and descriptions do not always lend the information wanted. A better plan is to use books of a large size, with leaves of manila cardboard for pasting in proofs of all electros and cuts entered and indexed. Each leaf should contain blanks for data relating to the work. A valuable reference of this kind consists of the following: (Figure 35.) This should be printed on a small gummed slip, about four by two inches, for pasting in the upper right-hand corner of each manila leaf. When a number of proofs are pasted on each page it will be well to attach such a slip over each. The value of this method of storing and indexing as a time-saver is obvious. All type matter held on live boards for future use should be entered and indexed in similar books. Aside from its value as a reference in determining whether a job is standing this method will aid also in checking up or cancelling work for distribution. A job ticket bin similar to the one illustrated (figure 36), is of inestimable convenience. This series of boxes should be attached to the rear of the foreman's desk, and each should be labeled as shown. All new tickets sent to the foreman from the business office are placed in the right-hand bin by the superintendent's errand boy. As these are entered in the foreman's job book they are placed in turn in the second bin. From this box the work goes to the compositors' hands. Finally, after reaching the proof-room all tickets are returned to the third or proof-out' bin. Two more
