Notes: "Joseph Ishill found one of his presses back in 1926, in an old woodshed, where it had been abandoned to the birds that sought shelter there on rainy days. After coming to terms with its owner, he took the rusty pile, a Favorite, as his own. From it has come many a fine piece of fine typography and printing." © James Lamar Weygand
