The text stresses the international links of the Society from its earliest days in the 1880s to the end of the 1990s, in particular drawing out the significance of American printmakers for the Society. It records the varying achievements of successive Presidents, from the days of the dictatorial Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910), brother-in-law and arch-rival of James McNeill Whistler, to Robert Austin, Paul Drury and Harry Ecclestone in the 1960s and 70s.
