Notes: "Edward Martin Moore's printers mark was, to quotes his words, "designed by nature and an accident." This is a fact since it is that famed printer's right hand, photographed, and then drawn by a draftsman. Since 1930 it has been used in all the books of this press, and has on occasion served to locate the press as at the Sign of the Hand." © James Lamar Weygand
