Notes: "This press takes its name from the nickname of its owner, Francis Earl Bonnell, being a transition from Bonnell, to Bonny, to Bunny. As the main concern of the press has been the printing of books, its first pressmark, shown above, quickly gave way to another, a rabbit superimposed on an open book. This sometimes is used with the byline At the Sign of the Rabbit." © James Lamar Weygand
