|Notes: "When the name of this press was shortened to The Allen Press, a new device was adopted which introduced another ancient pressmark theme, the heart, symbolizing again the husband and wife printers, and also the private press labor-of-love concept. It was engraved on wood by Mallette Dean." © James Lamar Weygand|
