About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for NICOLAS LOUIS ROBERT AND HIS ENDLESS WIRE PAPERMAKING MACHINE by Morris, Henry.

Description:

folio. cloth-covered portfolio with paper cover label and accompanied by small 4to. cloth-covered book with a paper cover label. Both inserted in a folio clamshell box with a leather spine label. 41, (3) pages and additional plates. Printed in an edition limited to 150 numbered copies (Berger A63). The actual inventor of the paper machine was a thirty-three year old former artilleryman named Nicolas Louis Robert (1761-1828). The existence of five of his own ink and watercolor patent drawings was not previously known until Leonard Schlosser bought the set at auction and reproduced them. His reproductions have now been lost except for a very few copies, one of which was given to Schlosser's friend Henry Morris. These drawings are of historical significance because they describe in detail the very beginning of the paper machine, an invention that had almost as much impact as Gutenberg's printing press. The cheap production of paper and the resultant dissemination of knowledge and information would not have taken place without this invention. The five drawings are reproduced full size on 12" x 16-3/4" card stock and held in a separate board portfolio. The accompanying book provides background material on the inventor and his machine and a chapter on the paper collector and historian Leonard Schlosser. cloth-covered portfolio with paper cover label and accompanied by small 4to. cloth-covered book with a paper cover label.

Book Description Newtown: Bird & Bull Press, 2000., 2000. Two vols. 7 1/2 x 11. 42 pages. Tipped-in color photos. Blue cloth. Portfolio (13 x 18) contains 5 color facsimiles of Robert's original ink and watercolor patent drawings. Folded facsimile of a sheet of assignats laid in. In red cloth clamshell case. Robert invented the Fourdrinier papermaking machine (1798) thereby contributing enormously to the explosion of affordable 19th c. printing. Here Henry Morris relates the story of Robert's work and its appropriation by Fourdrinier; with a chapter about Leonard Schlosser, papermaking historian & collector. Schlosser discovered Robert's original drawings at auction in 1976 and made facsimiles for scholars & friends. Schlosser gave away a few sets (one to Henry Morris), abandoned the project, and the facsimiles were lost (apparently destroyed when his Lindenmayr warehouse closed). A handsome production with a French ambiance. One of only 150 copies. Seller Inventory # 15053
