Print part of PDF in Preview

In Adobe Reader, I could zoom into a PDF file, then print only the part of the file showing on my display. Is there a way to do this OSX 10.5?

Continue to use Acrobat Reader?
In preview, you can crop images, so you could do this and the print the remnant. Just remember not to save the file afterwards!

I'd sooner pour sugar in my gas tank! But thanks benwiggy. I did try the crop and print, and it does print your crop. Problem solved. I also learned that if you make a pdf from the pdf in the print panel, you can further manipulate the cropped image, but it is a little hit and miss. At least you can rotate the image.
