 +====== Set at Random ======

 +When [[c:​compositor|compositors]] cannot make up their matter into pages as they compose it, either by reason of their working in [[c:​companionship|companionship]],​ or from other causes, they put it in [[g:​galley|galleys]] till they can make up; this is termed //Setting at Random//. When a compositor is obliged to set a great quantity at random, so that it becomes inconvenient,​ on account of the number of galleys it occupies, and the room it takes up on the[[c:​case| cases]], he ties it up in moderate-sized pieces and puts it on [[p:​page-paper|page papers]] under his [[f:​frame|frame]],​ with a bit of paper stuck in each with a number, to mark the order; if it be a work in [[q:​quarto|quarto]] or [[f:​folio|folio]],​ too large for page papers, he ties a cord round the matter in each galley and keeps it on the slices of his slice galley under his frame, till he [[m:​make-up|makes up]].
