An Unusual Position of Watermarks in an Italian Eighteenth-Century Paper

2013

Abstract

Positions of watermarks in laid paper can vary, but normally fall within a few patterns. This note examines the watermarks in the paper used in two quarto books in the British Library printed by G. F. Mairesse and G. Radix of Turin in 1713 and 1717. These watermarks fall in the middle of the book leaves, pointing to a hitherto unrecorded type of watermarked laid paper.
