If I read the excerpt for the context -I feel I stand in the composition
room of a printshop, most soitenly not in a bindery.

I would hapharzadly guess that shingling could mean you pull the colums
tighter to each other to prevent run-ins in the Text, same as I would guess
bottling you narrow the gutter to be able to squeeze more textmatter in,
once you already opted for a smaller size and narrow condenced.
Alas, just a guess.
sounds colorul and most soitenly local language.
I've hopscotched all other Europe asa prinetr and binder and also in merry
old England, never came across them.

cheers,

charles
