 +====== Tops ======
 +
 +In piling the printed sheets of a work away, after they have been dried and taken from the poles, the warehouseman takes a few sheets of each [[s:​signature|signature]],​ and lays them at the top of the pile; these are called Tops, and enable him, with little trouble, to deliver a copy as far as it is printed, when required, which frequently occurs in the progress of a work, without having to take down all the [[p:​pile-paper|piles]].
