Bibliographical Press - View to an Albion hand press, built in England in the 1800s. This press was used as the primary teaching tool when The Bibliographical Press was founded. Also seen is a composition stand that was a gift from Oxford University Press to the Yale University Library in 1932, although the stand itself is much older. In the background is a type cabinet filled with a variety of fonts, a library card catalog repurposed to hold spacing material, and two cabinets for storage of paper and printing tools complete this small-scale working press room.
