Notes: "Tho only sporadically active at this time, the private press of Claude Fredericks (and former associate Milton Saul) has turned out many a fine book that speaks well for the labors at the press. His pressmark, when one has been used, is a linoleum block, taken from a Vermont doorway, suggestive of the tree from which the press took its name."© James Lamar Weygand
