Excerpt from A Practical Manual of Typography and Reference Book for Printers: Specially Prepared as a Text for Technical Classes in Typography, a List of Technical Questions Calculated to Draw Out the Information of the Student Is Appende

When this work was first taken in hand, the writer's intention was merely to compile a Text-Book exclusively adapted for the preparation of students wishing to pass the Examinations in Typography of the City and Guilds of London Institute. It was, however, pointed out by many valued correspondents that there was need of a book which should deal with the subject in a more comprehensive spirit, while at the same time not ignoring the special requirements of those attending Technological Classes in Typography. Knowing, moreover, from painful experience that on a variety of subjects but little trustworthy information was available, either to student r-or teacher, the author has been induced to enlarge his original plan, and to write the present work, which will be found to deal with everything that relates immediately to Letterpress Printing. His object has been to expound the theory of the subject, and to familiarise the student with the principles which are involved in the various subjects cognate to the Art, thus enabling the tyro to apprehend the reasons why and how things are done correctly in a given way, and in no other. It is an undoubted fact that many journeymen, as well as apprentices, work exclusively by "rule of thumb." Their one argument in support of any method of working they may follow, is, that thus and thus it has always been done; and beyond this they are utterly unable to advance any reason for the faith that is in them.
