I have not made it a secret that one of my techniques for highlighting
the lunacy of Basch's notions is to hold them up to ridicule.  But, try
as I might, I cannot surpass Basch's own achievements in that regard.

this mean that the hapless printer was yet another of David Basch's
crypto-cabalists?
