Biography/Organization History

Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson (2 December 1840-7 September 1922) was an English artist, printer, and bookbinder associated with the Arts and Crafts movement. He was born Thomas James Sanderson, but when he married Julia Sarah Anne Cobden (1853-1926) in 1882, they both took the surname Cobden-Sanderson. They had two children, Richard (1884-1964) and Stella (1886-1979). In 1884, at the encouragement of William and Jane Morris, Cobden-Sanderson took up bookbinding. In 1900, he went into partnership with Emery Walker and founded the Doves Press in Hammersmith, London. The press produced all of its books, using a single size of type, between 1900 and 1916. The type, known as "The Doves Type," was based on types used by Nicolas Jenson from the 1470s. The type, punches, and matrices were destroyed by Cobden-Sanderson when he took them to Hammersmith Bridge and threw them into the Thames.
Norman H. Strouse (1906-1993) was the head of the J. Walter Thompson Co. advertising agency and a noted book collector. He and his wife Charlotte lived in St. Helena, California, where he amassed an internationally known rare book collection that included illuminated manuscripts from the 12th to 16th centuries.
Harold Peirce (1856-1932) was a noted private press collector from Philadelphia.
