is to provide such a device in which the pattern carrying

surface somewhat ahead of the transfer cylinder when the

FIGURE 3. In this case, the printing surface is con
tinually wetted with solvent so as to partly dissolve the
pattern at each revolution and effect the desired transfer.
The modi?cation of FIGURE 3 has an advantage in that
it permits of adjusting the amount of solvent deposited
on the surface by exerting more or less hand pressure
upon the wetter roller 2. On the other hand, the form
