Monarch

Monarch lathes were first made in 1909, when the company produced four different models. A reputation for fine-quality machine tools was quickly established and it is for this reason that the Monarch name is now so widely respected in engineering circles.

If you have an early Monarch lathe, this appears to be the only data available. 87 pages.
