Even the full stop at the close of a sentence is usually omitted, neither is the commencement of a fresh one marked by a capital letter. The following example is taken from near the end of the third book; "Cest pourquoy la premiere chose que tu dois faire principalement ates esprits familiers sera de leur commander de ne tedire jamais aucune chose deuxmemes que lorsque tu les interrogeras amoins queles fut pour tavertir des choses qui concerne ton utilite outon prejudice parceque situ ne leur limite pas leparler ils tediront tant etdesi grandes choses quils tofusquiront lentendement et tu ne scaurois aquoy tentenir desorte que dans la confusion des choses ils pourroient te faire prevariquer ettefaire tomber dans des erreurs irreparables ne te fais jamais prier en aucune chose ou tu pourras aider et seccourir tonprochain et nattends pas quil tele demande mais tache descavoir afond," etc.
History of printing Origins in China By the end of the 2nd century ce, the Chinese apparently had discovered printing; certainly they then had at their disposal the three elements necessary for printing: Some of the texts were classics of Buddhist thought inscribed on marble pillars, to which pilgrims applied sheets of damp paper, daubing the surface with ink so that the parts that stood out in relief showed up; some were religious seals used to transfer pictures and texts of prayers to paper.
It was probably this use of seals that led in the 4th or 5th century to the development of ink of a good consistency for printing.
A substitute for these two kinds of surfaces, the marble pillars and the seals, that was more practical with regard both to manageability and to size, appeared perhaps by the 6th century in the wood block.
First, the text was written in ink on a sheet of fine paper; then the written side of the sheet was applied to the smooth surface of a block of wood, coated with a rice paste that retained the ink of the example of copper plate handwriting alphabet third, an engraver cut away the uninked areas so that the text stood out in relief and in reverse.
To make a print, the wood block was inked with a paintbrush, a sheet of paper spread on it, and the back of the sheet rubbed with a brush.
Only one side of the sheet could be printed.
The oldest known printed works were made by this technique: Invention of movable type 11th century About —48 a Chinese alchemist named Pi Sheng appears to have conceived of movable type made of an amalgam of clay and glue hardened by baking.
He composed texts by placing the types side by side on an iron plate coated with a mixture of resinwaxand paper ash.
Gently heating this plate and then letting the plate cool solidified the type. Once the impression had been made, the type could be detached by reheating the plate. It would thus appear that Pi Sheng had found an overall solution to the many problems of typography: In about a magistrate named Wang Chen seems to have had a craftsman carve more than 60, characters on movable wooden blocks so that a treatise on the history of technology could be published.
To him is also attributed the invention of horizontal compartmented cases that revolved about a vertical axis to permit easier handling of the type.
In Koreaon the contrary, typography, which had appeared by the first half of the 13th century, was extensively developed under the stimulus of King Taejong, who, inordered the first set ofpieces of type to be cast in bronze.
Nine other fonts followed from then to ; two of them were made in andbefore Europe in its turn discovered typography.
Transmission of paper to Europe 12th century Paperthe production of which was known only to the Chinese, followed the caravan routes of Central Asia to the markets at Samarkandwhence it was distributed as a commodity across the entire Arab world.
The transmission of the techniques of papermaking appears to have followed the same route; Chinese taken prisoner at the Battle of Talas, near Samarkand, in gave the secret to the Arabs.

Paper mills proliferated from the end of the 8th century to the 13th century, from Baghdad and then on to Spainthen under Arab domination.
Paper first penetrated Europe as a commodity from the 12th century onward through Italian ports that had active commercial relations with the Arab world and also, doubtless, by the overland route from Spain to France.
Papermaking techniques apparently were rediscovered by Europeans through an examination of the material from which the imported commodity was made; possibly the secret was brought back in the midth century by returning crusaders or merchants in the Eastern trade.
Papermaking centres grew up in Italy after and in France and Germany in the course of the 14th century.Fukuoka | Japan Fukuoka | Japan. This is an index of all pages in PrintWiki. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 6 | 8 | A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X.
