Is there a way, using the library, to get raw bits into CCITT Group IV compression without saving the file as a tiff?

Or maybe there's a better way to do what I need to.

I am encoding CCITT data into a postscript file. My normal routine is to grab it right out of the tiff image. My new requirements are to take a portion of the image (I am passed rectangle co-ordinates) and put that in a post script file. I really don't want to uncompress the data, Take out the portion I want, save that as a new image and then open the new image to get out the raw data. That's the only way I know how to do it today.
