ANTHOLOGY OF DELAWARE PAPERMAKING.
Pfeiffer, Gordon (editor)
With an introduction by Gordon A. Pfeiffer and four wood engravings by John DePol.
Limited to 200 numbered copies; this copy is out of series. Set in Bell and printed on mouldmade paper by Henry Morris at his Bird & Bull Press. This work is based on an original article written by Barbara Benson about the general history of papermaking in Delaware. To this has been added two previously published articles - "The Gilpins and their Endless Papermaking Machine" by H.B. Hancock and N.B. Wilkinson; and "Papermaker Joshua Gilpin introduces the Chemical Approach to Papermaking in the U.S." by Sidney M. Edelstein. Finally there is a previously unpublished thesis written by Patricia M. Brown outlining the history of the Curtis Paper Company in Newark, Delaware. This is an important article as little has previously been published about the history of this mill which eventually supplied paper to so many of America's fine book producers. The four original wood engravings by John DePol beautifully illustrate a number of the mills and a papermaking scene.
