Bruce L. Johnson, 2008.

This in-depth study of Towne (1829–1917) describes on of San Francisco’s most influential commercial printers during the period 1853–68. Whether job, periodical or book work, Towne and his partners produced an enormous volume of printed material as San Francisco increasingly grew to be a major city. A list of the large number and variety of the Towne partnerships’ imprints (including periodicals and newspapers) is appended.
