SCARCE. Good. The T. & T. Imprint was an in-house organ for the promotion of Taylor & Taylor, printers. The title page has a long quote from William Morris: "To us who have a cause at heart our highest ambition and our simplest duty are one and the same thing. For the most part we shall be too busy doing the work that lies ready to our hands to let impatience for visibly great progress vex us much, and surely since we are servants of a cause hope must be ever with us." This issue contains "A Statement of the Policy of This House," which serves as a type specimen for the services Taylor & Taylor could provide, done up in an elegant Arts and Crafts style. Henry Taylor and Edward DeWitt Taylor were sons of San Francisco Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor. Henry attended the Harvard Business School where he studied typography with Daniel Berkeley Updike. Taylor & Taylor produced "restrained, handsome typography into the 1960s." "The History of the Arion Press" online.
