With a photo gravure of the author's mill accompanying a piece by Dard Hunter. The essay, published in 1931, is Hunter's reflection of his years of experimenting with paper and making type by hand in the mill he built on Jew¿s Creek across the road from his home, at the time in Marlborough-on-Hudson, New York. It was modeled on the half-timbered and thatched buildings he saw while in the Cotswolds in 1911. Seeking to make paper using 17th century techniques, Hunter used a water wheel as the sole source of power for the mill. Un-paginated. Binding is solid. Bookseller Inventory #
