William Peterson Publishes THE DANIEL PRESS AND THE GARLAND OF RACHEL

September 12, 2016

Oak Knoll Press has recently published The Daniel Press and The Garland of Rachel by Bill and Sylvia Peterson (both former faculty), an account of a small private press operated by an Oxford don near the end of the nineteenth century. The Garland of Rachel (1881) is a collection of poetic tributes to Henry and Emily Daniel's one-year-old daughter, and today it is regarded as one of the most sought-after of Victorian rare books.
