Dr. Miles Proof Printing Press

This cast iron proofing press was given by Dr. Miles remedies to small newspapers who agreed to distribute Dr. Miles' advertising with their newspapers for one year. Much of the Miles advertising can still be read on the felt cover of the roller. The 30" long cast iron bed is marked on one end Miles Heart Cure and on the other end Miles Nervine.

I have seen one other example identical to this in the print shop of a Shaker museum in New England.

Mile Nervine cast on one end of the bed.

Mile Heart Cure on the other end
