J. Johnson embraces this opportunity of filling up the present page, by announcing to the Admirers of the Typographic Art, and the Profession in general, that he has now a subject in hand, which he flatters himself will not only eclipse all his former productions, but likewise any piece that has ever yet appeared before the Public as a Typograpbic Specimen; it will consist of an arch, in perspective, supported by ten pillars, in the centre will be a monument to the memory of William Caxton, as the father of printing in this country, together with the names of the principal early nursers and improvers of our Art; the wliole will be executed with brass rules and flowers: the size will be eighteen and a quarter, by thirteen inches, which will be printed on line drawing paper. The above will appear in the course of the present Summer.
