PRINTING is the art of producing im-
pressions, from characters or figures, on
paper or any other substance., There
are several distinct branches of this im-
portant art-as the printing of books
with movable types, the printing of en-
graved copper and steel plates, and the
taking of impressions from stone, called
lithographing. We have now to describe
the printing of books or sheets with
movable types, generally called letter-
press printing, and which may undoubt-
edly be esteemed the greatest of all hu-
man inventions. The art of printing is
of comparatively modern origin, only
four hundred years having elapsed since
the first book was issued from the press;
yet we have proofs that the principles
upon which it was ultimately developed
existed among the ancient Assyrian na-
tions. Entire and undecayed bricks of
the famed cfy and tower of Babylon have
