"The last work of the Mountain House Press and the author's magnum opus, this book provides a history of American papermaking by listing and describing the first paper mill in each state from 1690 until 1811, six years prior to the introduction of the first paper machine into the United States. There are in the book 123 facsimiles of documents and watermarks and forty-two reproductions of labels used by these early paper manufacturers. The thick folio volume was to have been issued in an edition of 210 copies, but the author's own bibliography says that only 180 were completed. The book is printed on Dard Hunter's paper" (Schlosser). Schlosser 41; Cave, p. 331; Ransom p. 383
