In 1964 Nicolas Barker published an article about the Printing and the Mind of Man exhibition in the German yearbook, Imprimatur  Neue Folge IV – 1963–1964. The article, translated from English into German, was entitled "Der Buchdruck und sein Einfluß auf den menschlichen Geist. Anmerkungen zu einer Ausstellung." It appeared on pp. 99-102. This is the first of two pages of illustrations of the original exhibition published with that article. The upper image provides an idea of how the exhibition was laid out overall. The lower image shows examples of early iron hand-presses rather compactly displayed behind a hand-rail.
