Tiie manufacture of this Ink is conducted on sound Chemical Principles, under the personal supervision of an eminent Chemist, a Fellow of the Royal Society, who, for many years, has given his attention and research to the perfecting of Letterpress Ink.

This Ink possesses the property of keeping the Roller in good working order, so as never to loose the grip. It distributes freely—works sharp and clean—washes easily off the types—dries readily on paper, and sets off but little. Colour deep and permanent, never changing to the brown.

It does not skin in the barrel or dry on the roller, and is entirely divested of that unpleasant effluvium so injurious to the health of the workmen.

Lists of prices and terms will be forwarded on application to

Jeremiah Barrett and Co., Varnish and Colour Manufacturers, Nos. 130, 218, and 219, Bradford Street, Birmingham.
