(1836–1919) Scholar, fellow, and provost of Worcester College, Oxford, remembered for his lifelong interest in printing. In 1874, he established a private press—a precursor of the larger revival in fine printing—at Oxford, where he used the Fell types and handmade paper, producing some fine examples of typography, including plays and poems of Robert Bridges. A memorial volume, The Daniel Press 1845–1919 (1921–2), was compiled by his friends.
