This link is to a list of 64 items from the private collection of Pall Bohne, who ran the Bookhaven Press from the 1960s to the 1990s in various locations in the greater Los Angeles area. The list contains a few remarks from me regarding Pall's life and times. Pall's interests were varied, but most of the material offered here relates to his interests in typography, wood engraving, and the book arts in general. The list includes archives of material relating to Grant Dahlstrom of the Castle Press in Pasadena California, and Emerson G. Wulling of the Sumac Press of La Crosse, Wisconsin. All spelling errors are attributable to spell-check and a lack of proof-reading on my part. The list includes a couple of outlying items relating to Pall's interest in other traditional crafts, such as beekeeping and blacksmithing. Please let me know if there is anything here you would like to have. Enjoy!
