Finnish Bible Published in Duluth

The invention of stereotyping - making a mold from hand-set type from which plates could be cast - made it possible for printers and publishers who would not otherwise be able to afford it, to publish editions of the Bible with their own imprint.

Around 1880, the Philadelphia firm of A. J. Holman produced plates for printing the Bible in a number of languages. The Finnish Bible with a Duluth imprint on display was obviously produced by such a method.
