Notes: "For all his massive attainments in the printing art, Frederic W. Goudy remained essentially an amateur printer-Americas most distinguished amateur printer. And except for an interlude of commercialism, his Village Press, from its beginnings in Park Ridge, Illinois to its final home near Marlborough-on-Hudson, remained a private press in the strictest sense." © James Lamar Weygand
