Notes: "In keeping with an ancient typographical tradition, James D. Hart's device incorporates a pictorial pun. It shows a stag, a hart, looking at a piece of type, a Caslon capital H, a face used exclusively by the press. The only mark of the press, it was drawn in 1941 by Victor R. Anderson and was based upon a design by James Hart." © James Lamar Weygand
