Notes: "Designed by the printer, Walter Kahoe, the pressmark of his Rose Valley Press suggests the rural setting of the press in the borough of Rose Valley, Pennsylvania. Tho the device has appeared in almost a dozen books--fables, children's poems and the like--its use nowadays is reserved for the lighter titles of the press." © James Lamar Weygand
