Nation's Business Magazine
There are many online archives of newspapers and magazines. On this page I will show various advertisements about the Comptometer or Felt & Tarrant that I have found in such online archives and a few other online sources. If you find any others in the archives of your own country, then please let me know at mechcalc a t jaapsch d o t net.
These advertisements are shown here for educational and research purposes only, and no copyright infringement is intended. If you are the copyright owner of any image, and object to its presence here, let me know.
There are a few Comptometer ads that I physically own copies of and have scanned myself, and they can be seen in the Advertisements section of the main Comptometer page.
Articles relating to the Comptometer or Felt & Tarrant from newspapers and magazines can be found on the Comptometer Articles page.
Here are various ads taken from Busyman's Magazine (1907) later renamed Maclean's Magazine (1913-15).
Here are some ads taken from the New Zealand newspapers the Auckland Star and the Evening Post. It is interesting that two companies both claim to be the sole agents for the Comptometer.
There are no free archives of British newspapers, so this section is very small.
Here are various ads taken from the magazines System (1901-1921), Factory (1907-1916), The Independent magazine (1916-1918), the newspapers the Morning Oregonian (1917-1919), the Indianapolis News (1917-1920), and a few other newspapers and magazines.
Here are all the Felt & Tarrant ads that ran in the monthly Nation's Business magazine between 1925 and 1959.
The following are pictures which were found on eBay auctions. The exact publication years of the older adverts (1895-1903) are guesswork, but most of the other dates were provided in the auction descriptions.
Some of the ads refer to a Business Efficiency exibition at which the Comptometer was not present, and these ads were usually placed right next to an article about that exhibition. In those cases I have tried to include the article in the image as well.
