NOCTES ATTICÆ.

Anecdotes of Early Printing.

When printing first commenced, the most laborious part, the correction of proof sheets, was undertaken by persons conspicuous by their rank and erudition, and dignified by their stations, viz. cardinals, judges, and other eminent lawyers. The printers, in early editions, used to mark their books by some particular device, or a copy of verses, recommending the edition for its accuracy. In a volume with the title, the ‘Pragmatic Sanction,' printed 1507, the following lines are printed in the end of the book, by Andrew Brocard, printer, Paris :

[ocr errors]

Stet liber hic, donec fluctus formica marinos
Ebibat, et totam testudo perambulet orbein.

IMITATED.

Till an ant shall drink up the whole sea,

Till a tortoise shall walk the earth round,
May this volume continue to be

For type and correctness renown'd.
Mélanges Histoire et de Literature, à Fouen, MDVII.
