PAPER FOR THE PRESS sourcing and using paper at Oxford University Press 1670–1780

Monday 21 November 2016
Weston Library Lecture Theatre at 5.15 p.m.

A major publisher needs large supplies of good paper and it was hard to come by in the early days of Oxford University Press. Martyn Ould will relate what the Press’s archives tell us about how suitable paper was sourced, stored and used in the period from 1670 to 1780.
