About this Item

Quarto. blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine, boxed as issued. From the preface to this edition: "There are few books of a historical nature which deserve republication after 160 years of existence. Isiah Thomas's History of Printing is one of them. His book is still the beginning point from most investigations into the history of American printing, for he provides the tantalizing clues for which his successors have built their own studies. Further, his personal knowledge of many of the people and events which he describes in a frank and unadorned manner makes excellent and often amusing reading.". Bookseller Inventory # 1533
