Abstract :
For 500 years European paper makers, subject to the limitations of their papermaking mould, could only make laid paper; but in the mid-18th c. a new species of paper was invented. The elder James Whatman has been linked to the notion that he made this new paper. The first specimen of wove paper to appear in the West was used by Baskerville in 1757. Eventually a machine to replace making paper by hand was conceived. Other related subjects are explored including the genesis of modern drawing paper, Baskerville's method of glazing paper, and indirectly the vital role of alum in these papers. ;
