On slip laid in volume 1: "At the time of writing this book I anticipated a fourth volume, concerning the Bible Press in the 1770s. In the event it became apparent that given the nature of the material -- tables, graphs, etc. -- it would not make a suitable letterpress book and deserved to stand on its own. My expectation now is that it will appear as a paper in the Journal of the Printing Historical Society."
