"The High-Class quality of our Illustration in Art Books, Science Books, and Books in General Literature, is well known and appreciated.

"In the Journal and Magazine Department we have made a name for quickness and punctuality in dispatch, combined with artistic beauty of work, and on several pressing occasions have, by the rapidity with which we have tuned out important reproductions in Half-Tone, caused some little wonderment in out customers , and somewhat familiar feeling in our rivals."
