|Notes: "Up the road a piece from the hamlet of Ceres, Virginia, in a rebuilt brooder house, Marvin Neel has sheltered from the elements his 7x11 Jewell treadle press. For him John DePol has engraved on wood a device that captures the easy going mood of the press of the postmaster-printer of the Alleghenies." © James Lamar Weygand|
