We have an archives mystery! this spanish #watermark found its way onto a caroline county will that was written in 1757. a volunteer noticed an unusual spanish stamp on the paper (not pictured) and brought it to the attention of our research department. by placing the record on a light box we discovered this watermark. who wrote this will? what does the spanish stamp look like? we'll post the answers to both tomorrow- stay tuned! #watermarkwednesday #mystery #history #maryland #westindies #easternshore #archives

#reposted from assistant conservator @femoz you've seen the fancy version of the malaysia proclamation on #parchment but here's another original, printed only in red and black on t. h. saunders laid paper! can you see the beautiful watermark? (before digital photos came about, it is what a real watermark means/looks like) the singapore proclamation is also printed on the same paper. his watermarks are so intricate and nicely done such that saunders won medals, and was an important paper supplier for postage stamps and bank notes to many countries worldwide, in the 19th century. saunders paper now comes under somerset as saunders waterford, a #trademark #brand for many artists and watercolorists. #sghistory #sgmemory #malaysia #merger #thsaunders #paper #watermark #watermarkwednesday #nationallibrarysg

This week's #watermarkwednesday is imported! this watermark comes from the fly-leaf of a privately printed gift book where careful attention has been paid to the physical object of the book, evident in the typeface and quality of the paper. timely extracts from the writings of ralph waldo emerson privately printed by thomas todd boston, 1921 #librariesofinstagram #specialcollections #rarebooks #bookstagram #instabooks #watermark #paper #finepress #iglibraries

Happy #watermarkwednesday! the tradition of watermarks in papermaking began in fabriano, italy late in the 13th century and was continued by other manufacturers of handmade paper into the 19th century. watermarks were formed by twisting thin wires into various geometric shapes and adhered to the paper mold. the mold was simply a wood-framed wire screen which would be dipped into a “soup”-of-sorts of warm water and rag fibres several times. as the water strained through, horizontal (laid) lines and vertical (chain) lines would appear on the forming sheet. the shape of the watermark was imprinted into the sheet whilst the fibres were still wet, thereby thinning the paper in a specific area, forming the mark. the davidson rare book room holds a 1923 reprint by the nonesuch press of the poems of andrew marvell, the original 1681 edition of which is housed in the british museum. as noted on the cover, the edition was printed on handmade italian watermarked paper. #rarebooks #watermark #nonesuchpress #handmadepaper #italian #17thcentury #davidsoncollege #archives #iglibraries

One more, for my friends in the back: #watermarkwednesday. πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š this petit #filigrane appears in one of milstein's many foreign-language titles on things héraldique. technically, yes, it's not a #watermark, but an ownership mark, mais... quel provenance! how this copy got from the museé imperiaux to room 121, i don't know. someone will surely investigate. ----- #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #ig_libraries #nyplmilstein #milsteinbooks #enfrancais #instaworthy #filigranesduinstagram #wednesdaywatermarks #laidpaper #bypopulardemand
