 +Form or bench pressmen set the heaps of paper on. //See// also [[a:​ancient-customs|Ancient Customs]]. — //​M//​. ​
 +
 +In Moxon'​s time it appears the pressmen used what was then called a //Horse//, only for the paper when working, which we now call a //​[[b:​bank|Bank]]//;​ we have in addition what is termed a horse, set upon the bank; this horse is made sloping down to the [[f:​fore-edge|fore edge]], and the [[w:​white-paper|white paper]] is placed on it; the pressman is thus enabled to draw the sheets down with the nail of his thumb, or a piece of wood, bone, or ivory, with more facility than if it were laid horizontal, and it is more convenient to remove to the [[t:​tympan|tympan]],​ as the horse is raised near to it, and inclines in the same direction. ​
