Press Ephemera Collection

Scope and Contents Note

The collection contains material on private and specialty presses, dating primarily from the 1980s to the present. Many items in the collection are prospectuses and offerings of new books by the presses. The items are often specially printed on unusual and handmade papers or with special printing techniques.

The Press Ephemera Collection is intended as a supplement to published works held in MU Libraries. Examples can be found by searching MERLIN using the name of the press as the author.


The materials in this collection were gathered by Special Collections staff, and have been greatly supplemented by a donation from John Marshall White and Melanie White.

How to Use the Collection

The collection is available to all researchers. Material must be used in Special Collection's reading room during service hours or by appointment


Clicking on a press's name will take you directly to the information for that press; otherwise, clicking on the subject headings (such as "Private Presses C – G") will allow you to browse the lists of materials for all presses included in that file.
