It continues George L. McKay's similar work, published by the New York Public Library in 1942, which collected the names of craftsmen and artisans to 182 0.The Register also provides a record of those who were engaged in more than 125 interconnected trades and professions, including calligraphers, compositors, editors, literary agents, map colorers, paper rullers, stereotypers, tract agents, and wood engravers, and many others. Though the bulk of the Register lists those active in printing, publishing, and the distribution of books, the scope extends to all the graphic arts. Bookseller Inventory # 7428
