|Notes: "In his 64th year, and without previous printing experience, Hallie Holt took to printing a 226-page book on a 6x9 handpress. When that contrption showed little respect "for an old man's back," the book was completed on a 10x15 Reliable "power machine," and issued in 1955 as the first imprint of this press. Its device, drawn by the printer, is a heron, wading in the Sangamon river bottoms, supposedly near Abe Lincoln's New Salem, Illinois." © James Lamar Weygand|
