About the TALISMAN PRESS (from the Online Archive of California website):
******Talisman Press was a fine press operated by Robert Greenwood and Newton Baird, from approximately 1958 to 1969. After publishing "Talisman" magazine for only a short time, they turned to publishing two to three books a year on the subjects of Western American history, American literature, and bibliography. The business began in the San Jose area, but moved to Georgetown, California in 1962. Although they stopped printing books in 1969, Greenwood and Baird continued as book dealers until retirement in January, 1991.*****
