HULLMANDEL, Charles Joseph (1789--1850)
On some important improvements in lithographic printing, by C. Hullmandel.
[London, 1827].
8 p., 9 litho. pl. ; 22.8 cm. (8°)

Drop-head title. Hullmandel's improvement, which is demonstrated in plates specially drawn for the purpose by J.D. Harding and Richard J. Lane, was to add to the existing advantages of his apparently unique method of preparing lithographic drawings that of the ability to retouch, alter and repair images in the stone long after they had been printed off. Included are letters of approbation from Michael Faraday, J.D. Harding and Baron Isidore Taylor, the latter dated 12 February and 8 April 1827. It is possible that this pamphlet may have been a factor in Soane's decision to employ lithography for the plates in the Description of the house and museum ... of John Soane, which was first printed for private distribution in 1830. On some further improvements in lithographic printing appeared in 1829 (q.v.).
