This volume "presents for the first time the story of American papermaking. Mr. Von Hagen relates the history of its journey to Europe from the Orient and then traces its development on the American continent, of which hitherto little has been known. The book is especially important at this time when our attention is focused on the historical background and cultural achievements of our friends and neighbors in Latin America. While presenting irrefutable scientific facts, it is written in a style that makes fascinating reading for the layman as well as the scientist.” Dust jacket present. First Edition.
