    • found: Email to Anthony Garnett, Garnett Books, Fine bookseller of St. Louis, Missouri, exchanged November 21, 2013 : (Dennis Hall started by teaching and working at the Oxford Polytechnic (now Oxford Brooke's University) which had a press - the Inky Parrot Press. When the school cancelled that program, Dennis set up on his own but was not allowed to take the Inky Parrot name with him - hence the “Previous Parrot” imprint. ... he has played with the name, sometimes matching the imprint name to the title in hand ... “Inky Parrot” was used at the [Oxford Polytechnic] Tech from 1980-1987. Dennis used ”Hanborough Parrot” from 1987-1990, “Previous Parrot” from 1991-1999, “Inky Parrot” from 1999 on)
  • Editorial Notes

    • [Apparently same operation as Inky Parrot Press, Previous Parrot Press, Hanborough Parrot Press, all at the same address (The Foundry, Church Hanborough near Witney, Oxford)]
    • [Although published at the same address, notes in the four Parrot Press NAF records indicate an order in the existence of 4 of the 5 presses: Inky Parrot Press (Oxford Polytechnic) became Hanborough Parrot Press, which then became Previous Parrot Press. The name Inky Parrot Press was then reused as of 1999 forward. The unclear relationship in the mix is that of Treparrot Press.]
