Selected Production Photographs from the Dent Collection

Wilson Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

In 1906, J.M. Dent opened the Temple Press in Letchworth, a "garden city" located in Hertfordshire, 34 miles north of London. Designed to produce the Everyman series, the Press employed over 400 workers and issued 152 titles in the first year of operation.

The production photographs are from the Temple Press, circa 1935. Most of the images and captions appear in A Tour of the Temple Press by James Thornton, first published by J.M. Dent & Sons in 1935.
