The Doves Press

" 'Consecratio quae offertur ab homine non redimetur nec vendetur sed morte morietur'.

To the bed of the River Thames, the River on whose banks I have printed all my printed Books, I, THE DOVES PRESS bequeath The Doves Press fount of Type, -- the punches, matrices, and type in use at The Doves Press at the time of my death.  And may the River, in its tides and flow, pass over them to and from the great sea for ever and ever, or until its tides and flow for ever cease; then may they share the fates of all the worlds and pass from change to change for ever upon the Tides of Time untouched of other use."

Catalogue Raisonne, printed in 1916 by T.J. Cobden Sanderson of The Doves Press.
