About This Item

(Chillicothe: Mountain House Press), 1936. Quarto. (36)pp., + 25ff. plates and specimens. One of 115 copies printed on Hunter's handmade paper and signed by the author. Hunter was the first Occidental traveler to visit the Niltongkum family, who had been "making paper by hand along the small canals of Southern Siam for more than 200 years [in]...the most interesting primitive paper manufactory in Asia.... This book not only describes in detail the making of the various kinds of Siamese paper from the bark of the khoi tree...but also the journey from Singapore to Bangkok through the rubber plantations and jungles of the Malay peninsula." Contains a specimen of khoi bark and Siamese mould cloth, three additional full-page specimens of Siamese paper, as well as photogravures. Bound in quarter-black morocco with vellum tips and paper boards with a continuous design of Buddhas in black, red, and gold. Light wear to extremities, else a fine copy of this lavishly produced and beautiful book. The scarcest of all of Hunter's papermaking books. (Dard Hunter II, pp. 103-105).
