Description:
The Strawberry Hill Press was established on the 25th of June 1757 at Strawberry Hill, by the house's owner, Horace Walpole. He called it the Officina Arbuteana, and many of the first editions of his own works were struck off within its walls. The first works printed at Strawberry Hill, on 8 August 1757, were two odes of Thomas Gray, The Progress of Poesy and The Bard. Through Walpole's influence Robert Dodsley published in 1753 the designs of Richard Bentley (the youngest child of the scholar Richard Bentley, and for some time a protégé of Horace Walpole) for the poems of Gray. Among the reprints were the Life of Lord Herbert of Cherbury, Memoirs of Grammont, Hentzner's Journey into England, and Lord Whitworth's Account of Russia.
