|Notes: "Willis Tompkins' press takes its unique name from the secret languange of the druids. Its device, that printer's engraving on wood, is a wheel arrangement of the letters O-G-H-A-M reading clockwise from 9:30 (assuming that the printer of this book has it right side up), in the Ebad variation of that alphabet. It was first used in 1952 in the booklet, for God and Guthbert." © James Lamar Weygand|
