Paper Mills of Dorset
Dorset is one of the most beautiful of English counties. Although not famed for papermaking, it had a history of pursuing the craft that lasted almost three centuries. This well-illustrated booklet charts this history up until it ceased in 1991, giving a detailed account of the five definite mills, and one putative establishment, each entry being illustrated with maps, buildings or other imagery. A ´family history´ section contains copious details from parish registers and census returns, and after some ephemeral stories related to the mills, the booklet ends with the fullest reference section of any publication on the subject to date, providing a useful platform for any wishing to pursue further study.
A5, 36 pages, 30 illustrations, some colour.
