Notes: "Because he devotes more of his efforts to engraving signets and devices of one kind or of another, rather than printing them, Willis W. Tompkins has an abundance of fine ones. Here are two of his personal marks, each of which has a way of explaining itself much better than words could do." © James Lamar Weygand
