Notes: "At Rochester (N.Y.) Institute of Technology the Press of the Good Mountain was set up in 1950, to introduce its students in the Hand Composition Course to the rewards of a private press. Under the supervision of Alexander Lawson, Instructor of Typography, they select a project, plan its typography, set in type, print on a precision proof press, and bind. Ranging from a broadside to a 92-page book, over a dozen pieces have been issued. This device was adopted in December of 1955." © James Lamar Weygand
