Hesperides Press

I have found out next to nothing about this press, who ran it, how long it lasted etc.

This is their first listing from 1930, quite scarce it is said. Nice laid paper annd headings in blue ink which is a bit unusual – one of their stated aims was to try a few experimental things in their typography and book production, as they say they think it is all very conservative in other private presses.

They detail 6 titles of which three were certainly produced and some copies are available to purchase. They also list a further 3 planned future titles.

Wish I knew more…
