Notes: "Tho primarily a specialist in horse and buggy types, Robert M. Jones is also a private pressman whose Gladhand Press has turned out colorful handbills, broadsides and one book. His pressmark, a gilded wood carving rendition of which hangs outside his shop, is an open hand with jester-bell cuff, and a grin-like palm, akin to an abstraction of a clown's face." © James Lamar Weygand
