Actually, what is meant *is* copies made with a Photostat machine.

>From encyclopedia.com:
photostat: reproduction of any printed or simple black-and-white
material, such as drawings or manuscripts, made by the Photostat, a
photographic camera. While slower and more expensive than xerography ,
the process is still used where a high degree of resolution is
desired, as in publishing.
