"The urtof condensation bus evidently been curried to its limit
by Tbe Stono Printing and Manufacturing Company, of North
Jefferson street, lloanoko, Virginia. On a Binglo-pago hulf-lettor
circular they show the followiug samples of printing und kindred
work: Letter-press printing, half-tono engraving, wood engraving
(three colors), zinc etching, rulo und figure work (cnlcndnr in two
colors), printing in gold, mid embossing, automatic numbering,
cyelotUng, three kinds of perforating, ai?d sample ruling (in throo
colors of ink). For novelty, and painstaking euro in presenting
all tbo above at ono glance, we do not think this 1ms ever been
equalled?certainly not surpassed. The work is beautifully done,
und must have involved many hours of careful planning bofore
undertaking to produce such an excellent compendium. The
letter-press printing is a description of their establishment, which
is up-to-dnte und complete in every department."
