The Pelican Press was founded in 1916 by Sir Francis Meynell, with the active involvement of Stanley Morison - a British typographer, designer and historian of printing. He was one of the most influential type-designers of the 20th century, having designed the Times New Roman typeface (1931) and several historical revivals for the Monotype Corporation. A couple of stray pencil marks on FFEP otherwise absolutely pristine -- as if it came off the press today.
