View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Since it was first used by William Morris at his Kelmscott Press in 1891, the iron handpress has been preferred by a small group of European and American private press printers. This illustrated history of the iron handpress also includes precise techniques for printing with this press. In addition to detailed diagrams, the author describes every procedure a printer needs to know, from setting up a handpress studio to preparing books for the binder. The book should interest printing historians as well as amateur and professional printers.
