Thanks for the mention, Gretel.

That antique press is unique — made by Jabez Francis of Rochford, Essex, in about 1870. I didn't know a single one of them had survived.

A remarkable post! Although too far from my professional interests, I'm glad I saw this virtual exhibition. I liked very much the link to the Shakespeare cards. I'll give it to my son when they begin to study Shakespeare's works at his High school. Thank you!
