HEMP PAPER-PULP ROOM GUIDE

18.  READINGS ON PAPER-PULP.

PAPERMAKING:  The History & Technique of an Ancient Craft.  By Dard Hunter.  1947.  Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. New York.  611 pages.  
     "Tells all that the average reader will want to know about paper, and shows the vast importance that this everyday material has had in the shaping of civilization, and provides fascinating, even romantic reading as well." -From overleaf.
     Hunter has a dozen references to hemp in the history of papermaking, from the first paper, to the first printing on paper and the first paper book.   His 125 page chronology of paper and allied subjects is an incredible account of the importance of paper in storing and disseminating knowledge and  civilizing the world.

    Containing the Chronology of Paper and Papermaking

BY DARD HUNTER [EDITED]

"Because the hemp plant provided the pallet for the recording, the history of true pulp paper shows best the relationship of the hemp plant to the progress and civilization of human beings. Prior to the invention of true paper, that manufactured from disintegrated fiber, mankind had used many products of nature on which to draw, paint or carve their characters of language. Among these were bamboo strips, clay tablets, stone, tree bark, papyrus, animal skins, cloth and metals (lead, copper, bronze).  If man may now be considered as having reached a high state of civilization his gradual development is more directly due to the inventions of paper and printing than to all other factors. And all the way along this path hemp was there. The used articles of human agriculture and industry made of hemp and other fibers were recycled into this invention, this pallet of ideas and knowledge known as paper. I put this knowledge at the start of the book because one in a million Americans know this important story. A summary of Hunter's chronology will bring us up to more modern times, hopefully with a more even, more comprehensive understanding of the role of Cannabis hemp in history. My interjections into this chronology will be bracketed [in this manner].
