“Fine printing, which has always been strong in Canada, is especially strong at Massey College. The Bibliography Room of the Robertson Davies Library is particularly active during the school year, when a dedicated group of volunteers, apprentices, fellows, and members of the printing community come together to continue that tradition of fine printing. None of this would be possible, however, without the antique Victorian presses that are housed in the room. These presses, which are used today for teaching as well as printing, have unique individual histories.” You can read more here (pp. 15, 17).
