A lovely edition of the Book of Ruth from the Old Testament. James (b. 1897) and Cecil (b. 1900) Johnson were two brothers who began their Windsor Press in 1924. Their lovely typography rivals that of any other contemporary fine printers in San Francisco; their services were utilized to print 5 books for the Book Club of California, and an annual keepsake during the years their press was in operation. The brothers ceased operation of the Windsor Press in 1942.
