|Notes: "When it comes to a new press name, and a new device (after Maestro Books was laid aside), James Lamar Weygand wanted one that was thoroughly American, and preferably Midwestern. In the Indiana Kid, and in the river flatboatman pressmark he feels he has attained both. The first one was designed by Robbo; the most recent one, shown on the title page of the book was engraved on wood by John DePol." © James Lamar Weygand|
