London: E. & F.N. Spon, Ltd.. 1920. Fifth Edition. xi, 527, 12 pp. 8vo. An extensive guide to the manufacture of paper, originally published in 1888. This edition, according to the preface 'has been carefully revised with reference to technical and scientific progress. The disturbance of the Paper-making Industry under the stress of war conditions [referring to World War I] has not changed the technical basis of the manufacture; certain features and incidents of the phase are, however, of permanent interest and illustrative of general principles.' Includes seventeen plates, a fold-out of a modern Fourdrinier machine, black-and-white illustrations and diagrams in text. Bibliography, index, and paper- and British printing-related advertisements follow text. Condition Notes: Boards rubbed and somewhat soiled, shallow chip from spine head. Binding tight and square, interior clean with pages only lightly toned.
