A & G WAY

Printers of the original edition
of this volume

Andrew Way, Jr. was trained as a printer in Philadelphia, and founded the company Way and Groff with Joseph Groff in 1798. The company sought and received lucrative government printing contracts. Rules and Articles for the Better Government of the Troops. ...of the United States is one of their better known works. The firm opened a branch in Washington in 1800, and the partnership was dissolved in 1802.

Andrew Way, Jr., joined his brother George to form their own bookselling and printing company, A & G Way, in Philadelphia and Washington, which for many years was a prominent printer of the government publications. After 1804 their major activities were centered in the new capital. The business prospered, and in 1807 the Way brothers became the dominant stockholders in a new glass works, which flourished under their astute direction.

They were involved in local social and political affairs, and actively and very successfully lobbied for government printing. They kept on good social and business terms with John Beckley, Clerk of the House, and Samuel Otis, Secretary of the Senate, and these men of some influence helped them greatly.

George, who was the less active partner, died on May 26, 1819, and Andrew continued to operate the printing and glass companies. In 1822 Andrew brought in a new partner, Jacob Gideon, and the printing works began trading under the imprint of Way and Gideon. The company lasted until 1834—and thereafter Andrew Way, Jr. devoted his energies to directing his glass works.
