Joel Munsell was a true artist and craftsman. His love for fine printing and history became a motivating force in his work. It also kept him from becoming a wealthy man. His real riches are to be found in the fine historical books that came from his press and in the traditions he handed down to his sons.
Joel Munsell's career was long and brought him much recognition, respect and honor and ended only with his death on June 15, 1880.
