In the apprentice lists of the same company, over the years, there is also mention of Thomas Tucker (1805) and James Tucker (1819), whom we can assume were members of the same (papermaker) family. The paper has a watermark of a rampant gryphon wearing a crown. Holding the paper up to the light it seems as though it was made in three overlapping strips with pretty coarse fibers.Assuming W Tucker was an apprentice papermaker of 18 to 20-years old in 1803, he would have been about 50-years of age in 1833 when the paper for the draft notes of the Treaty of Waitangi was manufactured. any idea of when this print might have been made and by whom?
The chainlines are the imprints left in the paper during the production process (the paper is thinner at that point and more transparent when held up to the light) by the supporting copper wires of the paper mould (which in their turn are supported by wooden side bars of the mould frame), the laid lines or water lines together are the pattern mark left by the dense grid of parallel wires, the actual sieve, which are supported by (and attached to) the chain wires (standing at a 90 degrees angle).
Chainlines generally stand apart some centimeters, waterlines one or a few millimeters. Someone with better eyes looked at the watermark which is actually a date 1794, which corresponds to the original printing date written under the print (As You Like It, Act 4, Scene 3).
I would like also to know if in 1905-1910 there was exportation of paper from I am giving a paper on standardization of systems and would like to know how paper size was decided.
Was it determined by the technology or did technology address an existing standard.
This drafting process was undertaken between the 1st and 4th of February, 1840.
The final English draft, in the handwriting of British Resident to , James Busby, has a W.
I would be very grateful if you or another expert known to you could supply me with a clear picture of the W. I realize that 1917-23 is a short period of time, but I have exhausted other avenues (like musical style, information about peformances), and I'm hoping that the discrepancy in the quality of paper between the various mss.
Tucker 1833- 34-35 watermark design, which I imagine stayed the same throughout the years, other than the year of manufacture changing. will reveal something about the order in which they were composed.
I'm trying to get a sense of the role of the mills as a "proto-industrial" focus for labour, outside the generally-accepted idea that Bledlow was totally agricultural (the village gained national attention as a guinea pig in an 1835 Poor Law Commission scheme to ship excess agricultural labourers from southern ).
While I have read most of the literature regarding paper making in the 19th century (that I have been able to get through my sources), I still have not found a good explanation of the detail involved in producing wrapping paper from straw.
I detect another inner and off centre oval, with what appears to be a diagonally lying cross in its centre.
