Historical account of the substances which have been used to describe events, and to convey ideas, from the earliest date to the invention of paper
Papermaking - History
Writing materials and instruments
Matthias Koops was a pioneer of mechanical paper-making. He invented new processes for making paper from wood pulp rather than from rags, and for recycling paper itself to a condition in which it could be used for printing. The second edition (1801) of his book was printed partly on a type of straw paper and partly on recycled paper; the Appendix was "printed on paper made from wood alone, the produce of this country."
