Madam Padishal and Child.
To George P. Brett

"An honest Stationer (or Publisher) is he, that exercizeth his Mystery (whether it be in
printing, bynding or selling of Bookes) with more respect to the glory of God & the publike
aduantage than to his owne Commodity & is both an ornament & a profitable member in a
ciuill Commonwealth.... If he be a Printer he makes conscience to exemplefy his Coppy
fayrely & truly. If he be a Booke-bynder, he is no meere Bookeseller (that is) one who selleth
meerely ynck & paper bundled up together for his owne aduantage only: but he is a Chapman
of Arts, of wisdome, & of much experience for a little money.... The reputation of Schollers is
as deare unto him as his owne: For, he acknowledgeth that from them his Mystery had both
begining and means of continuance. He heartely loues & seekes the Prosperity of his owne
Corporation: Yet he would not iniure the Uniuersityes to advantage it. In a word, he is such a
man that the State ought to cherish him; Schollers to loue him; good Customers to frequent
his shopp; and the whole Company of Stationers to pray for him."

--GEORGE WITHER, 1625.
