Lithographer, Publisher and Bookbinder

Mr. A.G. Walling, located at the corner of First and Ash streets ,is the leading job printer, lithographer and bookbinder of Portland.  In fact he is the only one in this line of business who conducts all branches of it, and the only one prepared to properly do such work as it should be done. He is one of the pioneers in the business and does by far the largest part of the work of Portland.  He has the best corps of artists in his lithography department that can be procured, many of whom has obtained wide renown as skillful workmen in the east and in Europe. The artistic printing which is turned out from his establishment cannot be excelled in any similar institution in Oregon, and his book binding is known to be the best on the coast.  Just now he is engaged in the publication of the History of Southern Oregon, a quarto of 600 pages, [unclear] illustrated, neatly printed and elegantly bound.  This will be an addition to Oregon literature of which we may well be proud.
