Hadn’t heard of this one before, but a cursory search shows this company was active in the 1880’s and 1890’s at least. Was he put out of business by Bobbs-Merrill? Did he move on elsewhere? Was his company devoured and absorbed into another? What became of this early Indianapolis printer? This full page advert appeared in the 1890 City Directory–by 1904, there is no listing for this business.
