Joel Munsell (1808-1880), b. Northfield, MA; d. Albany, NY. Munsell was an antiquarian, author and publisher, and the owner of a very successful printing firm in Albany, NY. "He soon became the outstanding printer of his day. Typographical distinction was his constant goal, but his immortality derives from the fact that he combined his trade with a passionate hobby - the collecting of documents and printed material from the past." - C. R. Roseberry.
