REAL PRINTING 6,916
YEARS OLD ON VIEW
Fh( on This Continent Was
Done at, City of Mexico
in 15U!).
HISTORY OF AIIT SHOWN
An Instructive exhibition of printing
was opened last night at the National
Arts Club In Gramercy Park South
by the American Institute of Graphic
Arts. Technically the exhibtlon 'Is one
of American printing, but actually It Is
a collection of rare specimens of print
ing that date as far back as 5000 H. C.
It Is the Intention of the exhibitors
that visitors should leave the display
with tho Impression that civilisation Is
based on printing and not with tho con
viction, generally prevalent, that print
ing Is based on civilization.
The most ancient specimen Is a docu
ment with archaic writing c it In stone
which Is supposed to date ba ;k to 501)0
H, C. On tho other hand there Is an
exhibit showing tho earliest method of
printing by Impression which Is said
to have been made In 3000 II, C. This
particular piece Is the name and title
of King lr-Nlnglrsti Impressed In clay
with an engraved wood stamp.
The earliest forms of alphabetic writ
ing are shown in D.ibj Ionian clay tab
lets) In cuneiform characters. There are
a number of these specimens, line Is a
votive tablet of King Guden, date 2300
U. C. Another Is n receipt for grain,
In an addressed clay envelope, a docu
ment which probably would nut llnd
favor with the modem postman, date
530 B. C Then there is n payroll, date
1500 D. C. which shows that day labor
cost about ono mill an hour In those
days, and a legal contract, date 1504
B. C.
Civilisation Based on 1'rlntlna.
At the exhibition one learns that the
civilizations of the Sumerluns uud their
successors, the Assrlans. tho llabjlo-
nlaiiH, the Persians, were built upon ex
perience and knowledge transmitted on
clay tablets. The civilizations of India
were nurtured by books Inscribed on
palm leaves.
Tho civilizations or the Semitic, rare
were developed by books written on
skins and the discovery of papyrus as a
writing medium by the Kgyptlans was
an event of the first Importance, because
not only their own civilization, but also
those of tho Grecians and the Itomans,
were created by the use of books writ
ten on papyrus relative! as low priced
as modern books and extensively circu
lated. One gleans such bits of Information
as these: Paper was Invented In China
and made modern printing possible.
When Cortez discovered the Aztecs In
Mexico, paper was one of their manu
factures. Civilization has progrcsed
only In countries where mediums on
which to wrltu were easily procured.
Dooks were first stamped In clay and
were next Incised by stylus on palm
leaves, or written by brush or pen. Next
arrived the typographers, swift writers
with stamps, the successors of the origi
nal rock scratchcrs.
Paper was Introduced In Ihirope In
the twelfth century nnd In the fifteenth
century typography was Invented. It
was the reprints of classic authors by
tho printers that began the Renaissance.
All tills and more is to be learned at
the exhibition of American printing,
which Is, according to tho catalogue, the
veritable seed of civilization, of which
thu fine arts aic tha dower.
Hook -With Palm l.eavi-s.
One of tho ancient exhibits Is a book
on palm leaves. It Is part of the
Trlpltaka or Duddhlst scriptures. The
leaves are contained In their oiiginal
teakwood box. which dates about 1730.
The writing Is Incised In the leaves
with a stylus and the Incisions filled
with pigment. Hooks of this kind arc
still made In India.
There Is a facsimile of tho e.nllest
known Ihiropeau book, dated 143S,
which is entitled "Ars Morlendl" ("The
Art of Dying Well"). There l an
Illuminated manuscript book, dated
1450. of French or Flemish origin, and
many others of us ancient date.
One Is able to learn that the fiist
printing on this continent was in the
city of Mexico In 153!) and In Lima In
15St, Printing was established In Cam
bridge, Mass., In 163S. Hut In, general
American printing was poorly done
until the end of the eighteenth century.
One of the earliest specimens of Ameri
can printing is "A Seasonable Dis
course" by the president of Harvard
College In 1682. The printing was dime
by Samuel Green, who was the first
American to be taught to print.
