[Shandygraft Farm, Charles River, Mass.]: The Sign of the George, 1929. Limited edition of an unknown quantity, approx. 3¼" x 2¼", single sheet of paper printed on one side only, and folded and stitched as to make 6 pages; generally fine. Printed "for the benefit of the Convalescent Home of the Children's Hospital of Boston, Massachusetts.""All the work is set by hand in monotype Caslon, and no statement is ever made of the number of copies printed ... No press could operate in greater privacy and freedom than the Sign of the George, maintained by the George Parker Winships, I and II. Mr. Winship says: 'The thing has been a plaything from the start and I've refused to spoil it for myself by allowing it to be formalized. If the press has any policy, it has to print things of literary interest - but of no importance.' The Sign of the George is technically the property of George Parker Winship, Jr., as the hand press was a Christmas gift when he was just past six years old" (Ransom). Not in Ransom, Private Presses, and not found in OCLC. (Inventory #: 49338)
