(Foreword) 'This book has been produced to commemorate the 75th. Anniversary of COATES BROTHERS & CO. LTD., Manufacturers of Printing Inks and Surface Coating Materials. It tells briefly the story of progress from a humble business partnership to a public company with world-wide connections, and out- lines the developments of a firm whose affairs have been conducted for three quarters of a century by three successive generations of one family. It also contains examples of printing in monochrome and multicolour by the five main printing processes of to-day. When it is remembered that in 1900, when I joined the Company, aniline dyestuffs were only just in the early stages of experimental introduction from Germany, and that hitherto the range of printing colours was confined to mineral pigments and a few natural dyes, it will be appreciated how the illustrations in this book tell their own story of progress.'
