Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains items related to the Rampant Lions Press and its owners Will and Sebastian Carter. Materials include those printed by and about the Rampant Lions Press, including books in print pamphlets, lecture announcements, book prospectuses, and other printed ephemera.
William Nicholas Carter (generally known as Will Carter) was born in Slough, Berkshire (England) on September 24, 1912. Carter was foremost a printer, but also designed letters and did his own carving. He founded the Rampant Lions Press in 1924 after visiting the Oxford University Press. Will Carter published his first book in 1936, and officially turned the Rampant Lions Press into a business in 1949 in Cambridge following a stint in the Navy during World War II. He married Barbara Digby in 1939, and the couple had four children (one boy and three girls).
