Notes: ""Much as I favor the sumac name now," wrote Emerson Wulling on the 30th anniversary of his press in 1945, "I reserve the right to change it on or before the second anniversary." The adoption of a second pressmark, cut by Joseph Low, and the continued use of the Sumac indicates that name still finds favor." © James Lamar Weygand
