|Notes: "The private press of John Fass takes its name from a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania creek where, as a boy, he used to fish and swim and tramp along its banks. A turtle, Fass thought, would be most appropriate for a pressmark or device for the press. This one was drawn by A. Burton Carnes." © James Lamar Weygand|
