Can anybody explain to me the meaning of the word impressment in the context below?
With a curious, irrelevant impressement, with an intensely voluntary, ataxic strenuousness, always with the air of a drunken man constraining himself to ordered action, Harfager now set himself to the ostentatious adjustment of a host of insignificant matters.
M.P.Shiel, Vaila, 1896
