Notes: "Paul Schmit's drawing of a spray of eucalyptus leaves has been an especially appropriate device for Rosalind Keep's press, located as it is in her home, Eucalyptus House, situated in the midst of a grove of these trees, planted many years ago by her father. It is strictly a "one-man" shop, Mills College appearing in press imprints only as a mailing address, rather than indicating any official connection with that distinguished institution." © James Lamar Weygand
