From the archive of Cheney & Sons, 'General, Commercial & Artistic Printers, Banbury'. The calling card of partner John Cheney describes him as a 'Printer in Gold, Silver, and Colours', with 'Specialities in the best class of work', and the company's high standards attracted clients from London's West End. For more about the firm see 'John Cheney and his descendants, printers in Banbury since 1767' (1936), and the Victoria County History volume for the County of Oxford, Banbury Hundred. The eight items are in very good condition, lightly-aged. The first three have printers' slugs, with the printers' unnamed on the other five. ONE: 'Rules of the Banbury Lawn Tennis Club'. 7pp., 16mo.
