CIDE DICTIONARY

linotypen. [See Line; Type.].
     A kind of typesetting machine which produces castings, each of which corresponds to a line of separate types. By pressing the keys of a keyboard like one on a typewriter, the matrices for one line are properly arranged; the entire line, or stereotype, or slug, is then cast and planed, and the matrices are returned to their proper places, the whole process being automatic.  [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
