“To the Bed of the River Thames, the river on whose banks I have printed all my printed books, I bequeath The Doves Press Fount of Type – the punches, the matrices, and the type in use at the time of my death, and may the river in its tides and flow pass over them to and from the great sea for ever and ever, or until its tides and flow for ever cease; then they share the fate of all the world, and pass from change to change for ever upon the Tides of Time, untouched of the other use and all else.” Cobden-Sanderson (Journals, II June 1911, II, 181-2).
