recent address to the Birmingham Typographia , traced the history of printing from the earliest
period , and having described the cumbersome and defective tools of former times , he
counselled the younger members of the trade to take a great and artistic interest in their work ,
that they might enjoy , not only the work itself , but also the reputation for high quality ,
and that they might feel they had rendered really valuable service to their generation .
Thus , not only do books produce higher culture , but practical culture will raise the standard
of books .
