Excerpt from A Short History of the Art of Printing in England

The object of this little treatise is to present a brief but fairly complete sketch of the history of Printing in this country.

By the Art of Printing is generally understood the art of printing from moveable types. It is on this basis that I have dealt with the subject, no reference being made to Lithography, Copperplate printing, or the other processes by which impressions are obtained.

As my readers will be found chiefly among the printers themselves, I have not thought it necessary to describe operations with which they are familiar. At the same time it is hoped that sufficient explanation is given to render the work intelligible to those who are unacquainted with the practice of the art.

Being limited as to space, it has been my endeavour, after the introductory chapter, to confine myself strictly to the development of the Art in England, and to state all facts as tersely as possible. As, however, the work is published in commemoration of our first English Printer, I have written his biography at greater length than I should otherwise have done.

Wherever practicable, I have sought the original sources of information, but want of time has prevented me from proving some dates and statements as thoroughly as I could wish.

My thanks are due to Mr. William Blades, for supplying me with the means of obtaining photographic blocks of several old engravings; to Mr. Elliot Stock, for affording the opportunity of producing a facsimile of a page of the first book printed in England; to Mr. John Southward, for many valuable suggestions: and to Messrs. Koenig & Bauer, Messrs. Miller & Richard, Mr. Talbot Reed, Mr. Wm. Conisbee, Mr. W. Dawson, Mr. Samuel Bremner, Mr. J. M. Napier, and other gentlemen, for information they have given me.
