Excerpt from A History of Paper-Manufacturing in the United States, 1690-1916
This History covers the field differently. It is the only attempt that has been made to bring into one complete, compact narrative all the material facts relating to the industry and to present in an exhaustive and comprehen sive' manner, on the purely historical side, the annals of this branch of American manufacturing, from the erecting of the first littlemill in Philadelphia, in 1690, to the Opening years of the twentieth century. What has been done in this way for coal-mining, agriculture, many branches of manufacturing, oil production, the iron and steel industries and other American industrial activities has been here attempted for paper-making.
