Pollard’s essay was written for the catalogue of William Andrews Clark Jr. ’s collection, published in 1921 by John Henry Nash. Rather than a straight historical account of the two presses, Pollard offers a meditation on their influences and influence, particularly in matters of design and typography. It is embellished here with calligraphy by Martin Jackson, and accompanied by a leaf from both of the presses: the Kelmscott's Golden Legend and the Doves' English Bible; 25 pages.
