McCarthy’s American digest of business machines is “probably an unparalleled survey of office machinery in the 1920's”; “Particularly extensive coverage is given to Burroughs Adding Machines, the Hollerith and the Powers Tabulating Systems, and the method of operation of the various rival book-keeping systems” (Randell).
