Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Included are Peter Koch's work from 1975 through 1996. The archive contains works of poets and other authors that Stanford collects, and complements other library holdings by Koch and other fine presses of the American West. Among its approximately 1300 items are invitations, announcements, business cards and stationery, books, prints, broadsides, and related ephemera. It does not include MONTANA GOTHIC, Peter Koch's literary tri-quarterly which was published 1974-78.
The Black Stone Press was located in Missoula, Montana, from 1974-1978. It then moved to San Francisco. In 1982 the press was renamed Peter Koch, Printer, and in 1984 it moved from San Francisco to Oakland. Following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, the press again relocated, this time to Berkeley.
