THE CURTIS PAPER COMPANY: FROM THOMAS MEETEER TO THE JAMES RIVER CORPORATION.
Cooper, Constance J.
Limited to 1,100 numbered copies. Curtis has a history of producing the finest text papers made, often to the specifications of their customers. When Thomas Meeteer established his paper mill near the banks of White Clay Creek outside Newark, Delaware in 1789, he probably never imagined that it would continue to operate over 200 years later. Over time, the mill has had several owners; the technology of papermaking has changed dramatically; and the village of Newark has grown into almost a city by comparison. Its most recent owner, the James River Corporation, continues the long and proud tradition of papermaking in modern times. Printed on Curtis text.
