San Francisco, CA. John Henry Nash (1871-1947) worked as printer and designer for Tomoye Press from 1903 to 1911. In 1916, he started his own printing company, which stayed in business until 1938. He then taught typography at the University of Oregon for a few years. "Nash worked on this book, very intermittendly, for ten years. In its typographical design, it is evocative of the style of Ratdolt which Nash so admired for its sumptuousness and its suggestion of the rich manuscript page . . ." Robert Harlan, John Henry Nash.
