    Historical Overview 1805-1987
    Renaissance Range of Papers
    Cairo/Egyptian Trial Papers
    The Closing of the Mill

There are five illustrations, fourteen tipped-in paper samples, and
seventeen watermarks from as early as 1817 to the one that was made
for the last paper made at the mill, Finale, on which the book is
printed. The book is bound in Barcham Green Nefertiti paper with

As well as the book there is:

    A map showing the twelve water powered mills that were on two
    and a half miles of the Loose Stream in 1865. The map is printed
    letterpress on Finale and opens out to three feet wide

    A portfolio of twelve Barcham Green papers 7 x10 inches enclosed
