    Description
    Eighteenth century printing workshop. On the left the compositors are selecting type from 'cases'. In the right foreground a man is inking type locked in a chase ready for the next sheet to be printed, while the man next to him is inspecting the sheet of paper that has just been in the press before putting it on the pile in front of him. Engraving from Die so nothig nussliche Buchdrukerkunst und Scrhiftgickrei by Johann Erhard Kappens (Leipzig, 1740).
