The Coelian Press: A Bibliographic Note

The Coelian Press was a small private Anglo-Catholic press founded by the Rev. Herbert Hamilton Maughan (1884-1965), described by Michael Yelton in Outposts of the Faith: Anglo-Catholicism in Some Rural Parishes (2009):

Coelian Press was most noted in the Anglican publishing world as the first venue for the poetry and illustrations of the Forrest Brothers outside of The Church Times.
