Re: [BKARTS] Photos of 16th-18th c. Hand Book Presses ?



You should consult The Common Press : being a record, description, &
delineation of the early eighteenth-century handpress in the Smithsonian
Institution, with a history & documentation of the press / by Elizabeth
Harris and drawings & advice on construction by Clinton Sisson.
Publisher: Boston : D.R. Godine, 1978.

R.B. McKerrow's Introduction to Bibliography for Literary Students and
Philip Gaskell's New Introduction to Bibliography are also good
resources on the subject. Several years ago there was also a census of
surviving wooden handpresses, but I can't seem to dredge up the citation
at the moment. Gaskell may have been the author of the census.
