PRINTING is the art of producing impressions, from characters or
figures, on paper or any other substance. There are several distinct
branches of this important art-as the printing of books with movable
types, the printing of engraved copper and steel plates, and the taking
of impressions from stone, called lithographing. We have now to de-

called letter-press printing, and which may undoubtedly be esteemed
the greatest of all human inventions. The art of printing is of compar-

the first book was issued from the press; yet we have proofs that the
principles upon which it was ultimately developed, existed among the
