Notes: "As they completed their first book, Marion and Dan Greame Kelley still sought a name for their press, and also a pressmark, preferably a mythological-zoological totem. They found both in Feathered Serpent, the symbol of the (Mexican) Toltec hero-god Quetzalcoatl, who taught his people to live in peace and to be craftsmen and builders." © James Lamar Weygand
