„Die Welt ist mein Feld!" is the motto Hr. Karl Krause of Leipzig has prefixed to his handsome illustrated catalogue for 1890, a copy of which has just reached us. All kinds of paper-cutting and bookbinding machinery are shown in this list, and all the latest improvements are represented. The factory was established in 1855, with two workmen; it now employs 700, and the last year's output was 3200 machines. It is the largest factory of its class in the world. New premises, to accomodate a still larger staff, are in progress. Thorough and conscientious work, combined with business ability, has brought about this conspicuous success.
From the Liberty Machine Works, New York, we have a business card, the most remarkable piece of color-printing that we have seen. It is by Mr Earhart, and is one of the illustrations for his forthcoming work on color-printing. Without counting the key-form in black, there are five workings, producing thirty-six different colors. The bordering is elaborate and tasteful. On a square, gold-bordered, and set lozenge-wise, is a pansy, in natural colors. It is superfluous to speak of the quality of the work. In this particular branch, Mr Earhart is an acknowledged master.—Two other cards from the same house are enclosed—one, in somewhat eccentric style, on celluloid, being in the Spanish language.
