Portable duplicating device, apparently based on screen printing. The interior includes a hinged wooden framed silk screen and wooden backing plate which fasten together with a metal clasp. Present in the YCBA copy is a sheet of blotting paper and a page of text that appears to have been copied using the present device (the text, perhaps a sermon, discusses the concept of peace in Scriptures). One half of the box houses a rubber roller (18 cm wide) and a compartment for inking the roller -- accompanied by star-headed roulette wheel. The other half of the box houses additional supplies, including a "Lion Duplicator Pen" (14 cm) in original cardboard box, and two tubes of black ink (16 x 6 cm) manufactured by Ellams Duplicator Company Ltd. Watford. Each tube is in its original box, stamped: "Grade: S.R. Colour: black. Size: 3. For use on flat bed machines. All climates."
