First edition. Although we live in an increasingly digital world, the simple technology of paper - which the Chinese consider the first of the 'great inventions' - remains vital. In this history of paper the author examines when and why it came into use in different cultures around the world and how it has played a role in the development not only of literacy, art and education but also of religion, media and commerce. Fine condition.
