AN ACCOUNT OF AN ESSAY ON THE ORIGIN OF A NATURAL PAPER, ...
by Strange, John
An important early comment on the literature of alternative raw materials for papermaking by the English diplomatist and traveller, John Strange (1732-1799) (See No.14 in An Exhibition of Books on Papermaking from the Collection of Leonard B. Schlosser, 1969). This essay appears to contain additional material to Strange's exceedingly rare original contribution to the subject: 'Letter on the origin of the natural paper of Cortona ' (Pisa, 1764). The engraved plate shows various alternative papermaking materials.
