This is the 1960 3M Sound Talk for print through

There are 1000 papers listed in the Audio Engineering Society E-Library 
for the term print through.

The top one I got was one from 1980 by Neal Bertram et al. Neal 
understands this stuff better than most. Here is the link to that paper:

I don't know if Mallinson's books have much on that, but from all 
accounts he was a genius in this area.

I'm glad to see his book available in print-on-demand. I'd go with a 
used copy, however <smile>.

I can't guarantee what help it will be no time to look right now.
