AN ANTHOLOGY OF DELAWARE PAPERMAKING.
by Pfeiffer, Gordon (editor)
Limited to 200 numbered copies. 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 Finally there is a previously unpublished thesis written by Patricia M. Brown outlining the history of the Curtis Paper Company in Newark, Delaware.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. There is also an introduction by Gordon A. Pfeiffer, President of the Delaware Bibliophiles. Henry Morris designed the book and printed it by letterpress at his Bird & Bull Press. The text has been printed on mouldmade paper and the work has been illustrated with four original wood engravings by John DePol. Prospectus loosely inserted. This copy has been signed by Barbara Benson, Henry Morris, Gordon Pfeiffer, John DePol and Bob Fleck. Spine faded.
