Abstract: This paper, as the title indicates, is an essay written to avoid writing a philosophical discussion of the author's own work. It constitutes a chronological surrey of the most outstanding characteristics of German printing arts from the late fourteenth century to the early twentieth, with a discussion of the relationships discovered between these German prints and contemporary Occidental prints. Emphasis has been placed on the woodcut, engraving, etching, and lithograph, their physical characteristics and emotional quality, as they evolved from their Germanic heritage. Where it was believed pertinent, the background from which these arts developed and the atmosphere in which they were created has been briefly indicated.
