Description

One of the first true private presses, Lee Priory Press was established in 1813 by Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges (1762–1837) to provide collectors “with some of the most curious tracts of former days, in which there shall be an attempt to add beauty of typography and wood-engraving, to the interest of the matter ….” Brydges stands at the threshold of the English private press movement, and his works hold an important place in the Club’s collection of press books.
