I CORNER OF THE BINDERS DEPARTMENT OF JUDD & DETWEILER, INC., "ITO I'RINT TILE GEOGRIPITIC JLIGSZINT After being printed on other floors, the many 16-page sections of which the magazine is made up are sent here, where they are automatically githered together by the machines in the foreground, fastened with wire staples, and the covers are also attached by machines. The completed copies are then trimmed and bound in bundles, as seen in the picture, and allowed to remain under pressure for a time, so that the glue may properly set.
