Private Presses

The Beinecke Library collects publications of the following private presses. This is not a comprehensive list and names can be added as necessary.  Make a tracing for other presses as appropriate. Often the library acquires a private press title because of who wrote the work, rather than who printed the work. In this case still make an added entry.
