Notes: "At the Sign of the Turtle the handpress and the woodcut are considered a happy combination. The press there is a Hughes and Kimber, once owned by Bruce Rogers; the wood engravings for the work of the press are usually cut by John DePol, as was the Hammer Creek press device shown here." © James Lamar Weygand
