Re: intro and hollander plans

You're in luck!  The Friends of Dard Hunter, a handpaper making
organization, was recently given a number of unbound copies (by
the author/papermaker/printer) of James L. Weygand's book,
_The Weygand Tightwad Beater_ published in 1970.

They are available from the Executive Director, Betsy Cluff,
P.O. Box 773, Lake Oswego, OR  97034

The cost is $50 + postage (I don't know how much postage).

There are some very good illustrations, fold-out pattern for
building the back-fall and a cover, and a sheet of paper made
from this beater's pulp.

If you're in the neighborhood of a good research library look
for a copy of Henry Morris' _Omnibus: Instructions for amateur
papermakers..._  Bird & Bull Press, 1967.

This book contains a description by Arthur Laws about how to
manufacture 'The Laws Miniature Hollander' with drawings.
