Personal Impressions: The Small Printing Press in Nineteenth-Century America. In her preface Dr. Elizabeth Harris writes: This book is about the nineteenth-century printing presses that were too small to become famous in their own time, but that nevertheless existed in huge numbers. Scattered with humor and personal observations, Dr. Harris draws on her extensive knowledge of printing history and data, to create an informative and unique reference. The book includes her own illustrations of presses, as well as ads and photos from vintage catalogs, the Smithsonian Institution, and private collections.
The book can be purchased from amazon.com.
