Practical Printing and Binding: A Complete Guide to the Latest Developments in All Branches of the Printer’s Craft - Harry Whetton

Odhams Press, 1946, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Ex-library with usual marks. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding with heavy fading to the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The aim has been to give, in a single volume, expert practical instruction in every branch of printing, so that apprentices, learners and craftsmen generally may increase their knowledge of the latest methods employed. Printers as a class are anxious to learn more of their craft than the work in which they are immediately concerned. The compositor wishes to know something of the machine-minder’s work, and vice versa; the lithographer and the gravure printer appreciate the benefit of knowing something of the work of the departments which provide the material for transferring to plate or cylinder. The greater the sharing of knowledge among the numerous branches of the trade, the greater will be the efficiency of the industry; and it is believed that this book will be of great practical value in this connection.”
