Studies on the History of Papermaking in Britain Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


The late A.H. Shorter is widely acknowledged for his pioneering work on the history of the British paper-making industry, and his books continue to provide the basis for further research. The present volume brings together all his many articles, hitherto scattered across a variety of specialist publications and often virtually inaccessible. In these studies Dr Shorter tackled the subject with a broader scope than was possible in his books; in particular, they cover the period after 1800, tracing the changing geographical pattern of the industry. They also contain a wealth of detailed information on papermaking across Britain, notably in the counties of southwest England, that is impossible to find elsewhere, and is now made accessible through the comprehensive indexes to the volume. Le regrette A. H. Shorter est largement reconnu pour ses travaux originaux sur l'histoire de l'industrie papetiere britannique et ses ouvrages continuent d'Atre A la base de toutes recherches supplementaires. Le present volume rassemble la totalite de ses nombreux articles, jusqu'A present disperses sur tout un eventail de publications specialisees et bien trop souvent inaccessibles. Au travers de ces etudes, l'auteur s'attaque au sujet sur un rayon plus large que cela n'avait ete possible dans ses livres; couvrant en particulier la periode apres 1800 et traAant la structure geographique de l'industrie. Le recueil contient aussi abondance d'informations detaillees sur la fabrication du papier partout en Grande-Bretagne, notamment dans les contes du sud-ouest de l'Angleterre, et qu'il est impossible de trouver ailleurs.
