Book Description B. de Graaf, Nieuwkoop, 1985 reprint of the 1935 first edition, 1985. Cloth, red cover device, large 4to, 31 cm, 94 pp + cdxxxii pages of ills. From the blurb to an earlier reprint : " This book is a striking example of what a layman can achieve by means of perseverance, research, and patience. About fifty years ago Mr. Churchill, then British Consul at Amsterdam, became, quite by chance, interested in paper marks. He began to collect tracings of watermarks found in public documents in the Amsterdam Municipal Archives, and sheets of old paper, including a number of rather rare ream wrappers. His subsequent examination of these papers led to the history of their makers and so the author found that Dutch traders, not being able to obtain sufficient home-made paper for their export markets -particularly England - went to France. There they financed manufacturers of paper, eventually even buying French mills, to make paper with Dutch marks, of which the Pro Patria and the Arms of Amsterdam are the most typical. This work contains a wealth of information on this point, due to the author's pioneer research, as shown by the evidence of nearly 600 watermarks reproduced in their original sizes, together, wherever possible, with details on the makers and date and place of manufacture. This book, first published in 1935, almost simultaneously with NICOLAI, seems to have paved the way for a renewed interest in filigranology. In the 1950s and early 1960s several important studies appeared and at the same time the demand for Mr. Churchill's work grew. Hence it was reprinted in 1965, within two years followed by [another] -unchanged - reprint." Near Fine. Seller Inventory # ABE-43343
