THE WORKS of numerous foreign
printers are celebrated through-
out the lettered nations of the
world ; and it must be satisfactory to
reflect that their names can now be
met by some of our own countrymen.
By those only who have attempted
to bring the art to perfection is the

to the duty of the printer, and however we
may differ in our opinion respecting the fanci-
ful display of our pages, or the form that con-
stitutes beauty in our type, there is an effect
which cannot be dispensed with. The great
endeavour of many printers, who have aimed
at improvement, has been to produce a sharp-
ness of impression and fulness of colour, cor-
responding with that which is so attainable at
the copper-plate press; but however eagerly
such an effect may be sought after, an absolute
match will never be produced, though it may
be nearly approximated. In seeking after the
effect which belongs to another art, we are
neglectful of the excellencies which are char-
acteristic of our own, nor have we occasion to
lament our failure in the pursuit, when we
consider how much ours is capable of perform-




pursuit. Fine printing has lately been

any offensive mannerisms. Cast from 6 to 48 Point. o o

will prove very acceptable

be appreciated. o o o

traveller hired a post-chaise at the place
where he separated from Dinmont, with
the purpose of proceeding to far-distant Kippletringan,
there to incfuire into the state of the family at Wood-
bourne, before he should venture making his presence
in the country known to Miss Mannering. The stage
was a long one of eighteen or twenty miles, and the
road lay across country. To add to the inconveniences
of the journey, the snow began to fall pretty cfuickly.
(J The postillion, however, proceeded on his journey
for a good number of miles, without expressing doubt or
hesitation. It was not until the night was right set in,
that he intimated his apprehensions whether he was
in the right road. The increasing snow rendered this
intimation rather alarming, for as it drove full in the
lad's face, and lay whitening all around him, it served
in two different ways to confuse his knowledge of the
country, and to diminish the chance of his recovering

the right track. Brown then himself got out and had
a look round, not, it may be well imagined, from any
better hope than that of seeing some house at which
he might make incfuiry. But not even one appeared
he could therefore only tell the lad to drive steadily
on. The road on which they were ran through a few
plantations of considerable extent and depth, and the
traveller, therefore, conjectured that there must be some
gentleman's mansion at no great distance. At length,
after struggling wearily on for about three miles, the
post-boy stopped, and protested his horses would not
budge a foot farther ; " but he saw," he said, " a light
among the trees, which must proceed from a house ;
the only way was to incfuire the road there." Accord-
ingly, he dismounted, heavily hindered with the long
greatcoat, and a pair of big boots which might have
