Various small articles and advertorials
There are many online archives of books, newspapers and magazines. On this page I will show various articles and extracts about or related to the Marchant Calculating Machine Company that I have found in such online archives and 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 articles and extracts are shown here for educational and research purposes only, and no copyright

I have in some cases rearranged the layout of the text for the sake of readability, for example placing columns of text from different pages side by side in the same image, or splitting a single long column into two.
