With the one execption I listed these are all satndard art school
printmaking papers, Judging by the list a woodcut class.  Some of them
are basicly for decoration applications.  Any good printmaking
printmakers paper catalog will still list most of them and give rag or
archival properties and general uses.

What you have is small gold mine most of what you have sells for seberal
doillars a sheet.  A/N/W still imports most of the fine art papers to the
U.S. and to most smaller vendors. Any good fine art paper catalog or
Prinmaking textbook like "Printmaking: History and Process by Donald Saff
and Deli Saccilotto (sp?) will list most of them.  For letter press
printing you might need a tack reducer for your ink but don't hesitate to
give them a try.
