The gathering, a quire in manuscripts, is called a signature in printed books. Page 32 The next stage was imposition. The compositor took the pages and arranged them on a large flat stone, known as the imposing stone. By means of the signatures, catchwords, and folio numbers, he arranged the pages in the appropriate order. The pages of type were surrounded by the chase, a rectangular wooden frame. Wooden blocks, called furniture, were used to fill in the empty space, and wedges of wood, known as quoins, were used to lock in the type and furniture and make them secure.

The first stage in printing was composition. When the printer had decided on a text to print, it was necessary to cast off the copy. This means that he had to determine how many pages the work would take, how many lines per page, and so forth. This reckoning was also essential for determining the amount of paper to order. We occasionally find marks in manuscripts left by printers as they marked up copy for the compositor.
