The Middle Hill Press was established ca 1822 by the bibliophile, Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792-1872). It was used by him mainly to publish his discoveries in early English topography and genealogy. A large number of works emanating from the Press were edited by Phillipps himself and printed in very limited editions varying from twenty-five to one hundred copies. Many are leaflets consisting of extracts from registers, visitations, genealogies, etc. The collection also includes some proofsheets annotated by Phillipps.
