This book, first published in a limited edition in 1869 but here reprinted from the 1886 edition, tells the colourful story of John (1769 1813) and James (1792 1842) Catnach, the father-and-son printers who were leaders in the expanding market for cheap publications for the masses.

Johns contribution was to start using real paper and printers ink instead of the cheap substitutes current at the time. He was also noted for embellishing his work with great technical skill. James later developed a successful business printing cheap song-sheets, ballads and sensationalist accounts of crimes, conspiracies and scandals, and was able to support his widowed mother and his sisters on the proceeds.

This lively biography is illustrated with numerous woodcuts, many from Catnachs publications.
