Barbara Raheb (Pennyweight Press) is the most prolific U.S. publisher of miniature books of the 20th century, and is noted for her artwork within these books. Among her more than five hundred miniature books is the uniformly bound Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes Series.

Mosiac Press is the imprint of Miriam Irwin of Cincinnati, Ohio. The press publishes authors recruited by Irwin, and many of the press's books are bound by her. A gathering of miniature book publishers at her family farm in Trip City, Ohio in 1983 became the first Grand Conclave, or national meeting of the Miniature Book Society. Also in this miniature bookcase are specimens from Carol Wenk's Miniature Book Studio.

The miniature almanacs and annual gift books assembled in this miniature bookcase form in themselves a small library of early 19th century French imprints, including such publishers as L. Janet, Marcilly, E. Jourdan and Le Fuel.

Borrower's Press, operated by Jane Bernier, has issued dollhouse scale miniature books under that imprint from both Maine and Ohio. These books were printed on a hand press, either from type or from photographically reduced plates.

Miniature Dictionaries have been popular throughout the Twentieth century, from the Lilliput-Wörter-Bucher early in this century, to those issued by Langenscheidt recently, and the many variations on miniature Webster's Dictionaries. This representative sample indicates the huge variety of language combinations available.

Clock cases which have retired from their original function have often been modified by collectors, especially collectors of miniatures and miniature books. Ruth Adomeit possessed a number of such cases, usually devoting each to a topic or period in order to organize her collection. The two shown are essentially as they were in her home, the larger containing a variety of 19th and 20th century British and American imprints, the smaller containing a portion of her collection of books from the Press of Ward Schori, and other items.
