Emery Walker (1851-1933) was a printer, private press publisher, book collector and an important figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement in the late 19th and early 20th century. A great friend of William Morris, he assisted him in setting up his Kelmscott Press, and was an active member of the Hammersmith Socialist League. He assisted many private presses, and later set up his own press, the Doves Press, with his friend TJ Cobden-Sanderson. He ran a highly successful photographic reproduction company, Emery Walker Ltd., specialising in reproducing fine art in books.
