Biographical History

St. Dominic's Press was founded in 1916 by H.D.C. Pepler. The purpose of the press was "[not] to reach the 'Doves' standard...[but] to print anything which might be required of me, from a billhead to a book, and to use handmade paper."

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The St. Dominic's Press Collection consists of miscellaneous printed material from the press. It includes a broadside ("A Carol"), book lists from 1930 and 1933, a book of handmade paper samples, and other items.
