American Watermarks 1690-1835 – #BK-270



Thomas L. Gravell, George Miller and Elizabeth Walsh

Thomas Gravell has spent many years collecting examples of early American watermarks. This collection of over one thousand watermarks is now housed by the Special Collections Dept. at the University of Delaware. This is a new book, expanded and revised from a 1979 publication, which comprises the latest information on these early watermarks. Samples of the watermarks, indexed and computer enhanced, as well as the histories of paper mills where the papers were manufactured, indexes, a glossary, and a bibliography complete this interesting new text, sure to become an indispensable reference in the field.
