Ix consequence of numerous inquiries from students attending the courses of lectures on “ The Manufacture and Uses of Paper” given in 1904-5 at the central Y.M.C.A., Exeter Hall, Strand, London, the author reproduces his lectures in book form, and offers the present treatise to stationers, printers, publishers, bookbinders and others as an elementary manual on the Technology of Paper.
While the author hopes that this book may be useful to the papermaker, he has directed his attention, mainly, to a discussion of the subject for the benefit of those who use the paper. Numerous text-books have
. already been published dealing with the art of papermaking, but up to the present time no popular work has been issued in which the subject is treated along the lines suggested by this preface.
Discussion of the many important and highly technical details in connection with the manufacture of paper have therefore been omitted, as outside the scope of this work.
The author wishes to express his indebtedness to those who have supplied drawings and blocks for the purpose of illustrating this book, and amongst others Messrs. Bertrams Limited, Baird and Tatlock, James Bertram and Sons, T. J. Marshall and Co., Green, Son and Waite, W. Notman (Montreal), Louis Schopper (Leipzig), Waterous Co. (Brantford, Canada), Laurentide Pulp Co. (Quebec), J. Christie Esq., Professor Herzberg.
The author has attempted to make a glossary of the various qualities of paper known to the trade, and to give some notes as to the origin of the names used, It is very difficult to obtain precise and complete information as to many of the papers, and the author would feel grateful to his readers for any further information and correction which conld be inserted in the next edition.
A complete glossary compiled in this way should be of considerable interest.
