Samples of Handmade Japanese Vellum by the Japan Paper Company
Pair of booklets containing samples of various weights of Japanese vellum which became very popular in the early 1900s. Includes prices and illustrated with recommended uses. One contains a 1916 price list along with a 1921 updated price list and the other has a copyright date of 1927.
New York and Philadelphia. Japan Paper Company. 1921 & 1927.
1921 - 26pp (22.2 x 15.7cm). 1927 - 20pp (22.3 x 14.4cm)
Both in very good condition. The 1927 issue has one small area of the lower corner cut out (probably someone who wanted to give a sample to another person). The 1921 issues has 'Japanese Vellum', written neatly at the top of the front cover as well as two faint stamps reading 'These prices are void. See current [price list?]....'. b32020496
