Notes: "That fancy handle to the contrary (der Zauberberg: magic mountain) there are, Kansan Don Drenner assures us, no mountains in his state, magic or otherwise. Rather, the name of his press was inspired by a favorite of his, Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain; and the pressmark, drawn by D. von R. Drenner, his father, by another long-time favorite, the myth of Europa and the Bull." © James Lamar Weygand
