Dear Bay Area Preservation Network member,
Advanced Book Information . . .
Containing over 1,050 watermark illustrations, this work published by Oak
Knoll Press is the most comprehensive catalog on American watermarks to date!
by Thomas Gravell,
George Miller & Elizabeth Walsh
In 1979 Thomas Gravel and George Miller published an interim edition of
their watermark research which illustrated over 700 watermarks together
with provisional thumbnail sketches of the paper mills that produced them.
This new edition, revised with the assistance of Elizabeth Walsh of the
Folger Shakespeare Library, incorporates enhanced illustrations of all the
original 700 watermark photographs, and adds more than 320 new watermarks
found by Mr. Gravell during the past twenty years.
In all, 1,057 watermarks have now been computer enhanced and tripled
indexed for better identification. This new corpus of research includes
revised and up-dated paper-mill histories, an updated bibliography, a new
glossary of paper-making, and new name, geographic, and iconographic indexes.
A new Foreward by Keith Arbour recounts Thomas Gravell’s contributions to
