Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing.

If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding.

Tan boards with black lettering on spine and front and front board has a small logo. There very light wear to the boards and the front board bottom corner is lightly bumped. There is a previous owner's name on the front endpaper and a couple of light marks on the half-title page. Interior text pages are as new. This volume is handset by the author in Caslon and Century types. There is an urgent need (1945) in the printing industry for young craftsmen who are properly trained in the science of printing, and who are acquainted with the details of the basic operations of the trade. It is in answer to that need that this book has been developed. Our purpose has been to select and arrange such material as will be most helpful to the student of printing, whether in the school printshop, or in the apprentice department of the commercial printing plant. The book will be found to contain reliable information and instruction on the various trade processes that are commonly considered as essential to a complete and well-rounded apprentice training in typography. The material which comprises the text is in no sense in a theoretical or experimental stage. Each chapter has been perfected from practical lesson material which has been successfully used in regular classes, and after taking its present page form, it has been again subjected to the test of regular class procedure. Proofs of each section have also been submitted to outstanding specialists in the trade, and verified as to correctness of technical detail. Some of our best printing instructors, and many printers of national reputation have given much time and attention to the perfection of this material. Contents in 41 Chapters beginning with Cairn and ending with Oil and Water Won't Mix. This book ends with a Glossary of Technical and Trade Terms Size: 5 1/2" x 8". Seller Inventory # 18650
