Excerpt from Mr. Ishii and His Orphanage: A Japanese Apostle of Faith and His Asylum at Okayama
The work of printing and binding was'done by the orphans and their helpers at the Okayama Asylum and being their first large venture in both English printing and book binding, may well be judged leniently. It is a true register of skill achieved up to date. Owing to scarcity of Eng lish type, the book has been printed in eight page sections. This accounts for minor typograph ical eccentricities. The lettering on the front cover was the handiwork of S. Yoshida a student in Bi Gakuin the Christian Boy's School at Okayama. The phototypes were prepared by S. Oya ma of Kyoto whose work commends itself. I take this occasion to thank him for special courte sies growing out of a genuine desire to aid the Orphanage.
