Thomas visited the Lessebo mill in Sweden, a mill which had first started manufacturing paper in 1693. In addition to describing what he found there, Thomas gives a history of papermaking in Sweden. Tipped-in are six samples of paper from Lessebo, one made in 1990 and the rest during various times in the 20th century.
