I’m currently taking part in a project funded by Canterbury Christ Church University, to print entries for this competition:
The project blog is ladyaudleysecret.com
My good friends over at Briarpress helped me identify this, my latest treasure, as:
“a Baltimorian” #10 by J.F.W. Dorman Company. 1885-1904
(Or a “Baltimore” #10 by Baumgarten & Co. 1895-1900 as they are practically identical).
Very helpfully, the post also included these links to some very handy press identification sheets. I am indebted to Oprion for these:
Here I am, post Sissinghurst, blogging again about some of the print-related ephemera that’s proving especially interesting and useful for my current research.
Today’s link is here, a brilliant e-version of the instructions for the Holtzappel-Cowper press, 1876.
I’m currently writing a paper entitled “Scandalous Documents: Print, Porn and the Parlour Press”, for this conference.
I’ll post the abstract here when I’m done.
I’m still mostly blogging over at the http://letterpressreimagined.com site, all about the progress of our project in conjunction with the Heritage Lottery Fund, Canterbury Christ Church University and the National Trust:
