Dwight Agner, February 1994." Fine. The Oxford English Dictionary records the first use of the term "compositor" in 1569, as "the person 'whose business is to set up type to print from.'" This is an attempt by one who "labored in composing rooms assembling single leaden types" to reflect upon the experiences of an obsolete profession. INSCRIBED by the printer and publisher of The Press of the Nightowl, Dwight Agner, to Paul Hayden Duensing (1929-2006), founder of The Private Press and Typefoundry of Paul Hayden Duensing. Duensing was a private type founder and a founding member of the American Typecasting Fellowship and one of the foremost practitioners of modern type founding in Southern California who later moved to the Southern United States. Duensing was an important part of the preservation of type-founding and matrix-making in the late 20th century.
