stone papers

Plain, dull-coated brown, green, and slate-gray papers, which were used for Bibles beginning in about 1821, and a short time later appeared in the early cloth bindings. Their smooth-coated finish, usually in very somber shades, were very respectably Victorian, and although perhaps practical, were unattractive; however, their use continued until the end of the century.
