Book Description Bird & Bull Press, North Hills, Pennsylvania, 1981. Hardcover. Book Condition: Like New. 1st Edition. 120, [3] pages. Quarter brown Oasis leather and leather tips with paper decorated boards. Gilt-lettered spine. 120, (3) pages. Bound by E. Gray Parrot. #`48 of 300 numbered copies printed from Baskerville Types on Hahnemuhle Ingres-Buttenpapier. Frontispiece. A reprint, re-set, of a book by John Murray in 1829 on the state of papermaking at that time. It discusses the impact on the usefulness and longevity of paper of some of the practices used by the industry. The book is prophetic in tone in light of what has occurred during the last 150 years. Schlosser has added an excellent introduction explaining Murray's concerns with using shorter paper fibers in mechanical papermaking machinery, the increased use of minerals in the pulp, the introduction of chemical bleaching, and the introduction of sizing into the pulp. Henry Morris has added his own introductory remarks about other aspects of John Murray's life. He has also reprinted several abstracts on other Murray discoveries such as a "New Method of Saving Lives in Cases of Shipwreck and of Fire," a "New Shower Bath" and a respirator for aid in breathing. With an introductory essay by Leonard Schlosser, a note from the publisher, Henry Morris, an appendix of abstracts concerning John Murray, a reproduction of the original title page, and a wood engraving of a paper machine from the 1835-40 period as frontispiece. Printed by master craftsman, Henry Morris, on laid, watermarked paper. The book is relatively early in Morris' career. His last book was issued in 2013. Bookseller Inventory # 009337
