    The 18th-century writer Horace Walpole is best remembered today for the charming 'Gothick' house he built at Strawberry Hill in southwest London. Passionately interested in printing and publishing, he also set up a press on his estate. With reproductions of printed works, paintings and drawings, this attractive book surveys the productions of Walpole and his printer Thomas Kirgate, from the first edition of Gray's Odes to founding works of art history, and describes the machinery used to print them.
