Twenty-five plates (many folding), nine specimens of paper, & numerous figures in the text. Large 4to, orig. boards. [Chillicothe: The Mountain Press], 1923. Limited to 200 numbered copies, signed by the author. The first Mountain House Press book, printed in the type made by Hunter for this book on paper supplied by J. Barcham Green and made on Hunter's own moulds. Hunter's first book on papermaking history contains chapters on watermarks, with a survey of early American watermarks and specimens of Hunter's light-and-shade watermarked paper, bearing his profile and name. Fine copy from The Garden Library of Haven O'More with his bookplate. The spine and corners are wonderfully white and clean (the binding usually suffers from soiling). Three of the paper samples at end are loose due to the drying out of the glue used by Hunter (actually they are easier to handle). ❧ Schlosser 32-"The author's first major work." .
