    Excerpt from Notable New Yorkers of 1896-1899: A Companion Volume to King's Handbook of New York-City

    Whoever thinks a faultless piece to see, Thinks what ne'er was, nor is, nor e'er shall be.

    The first edition of this book copies of 616 pages each is a notable single undertaking of these times. Each sheet is a solid form of 32 pages. Containing 128 portraits, every one of which must be brought out for its full value. As regards the printing or press-work A great newspaper sends its stereotyped page forms to its wonderful octuple presses. And in a few minutes its 16-page papers are being delivered, all folded, pasted and counted, at the rate of an hour. In fine book-making, only one side of a single sheet can be printed at a time on the best book presses, and instead of a few minutes to start it requires several days' careful preparation for a form one-quarter the size of a newspaper, and the book-printer does well to get off well-printed sheets of this character in two weeks. This volume, 20 different forms sheets. 36 x 50 inches - ou which two modern book presses have been kept constantly running for five months, shows the difference between book and newspaper work, and the time required accounts for many seeming discrepancies in the inscriptions. The printing was done by Bartlett 8: Company, and would tax the best capacity of any printing-house to equal it.
