From the library of noted Southern California collector John Urabec. Laid in is a prospectus for this book sent to Urabec in a Bird & Bull envelope. Also laid in is a holograph note from Bird & Bull printer Henry Morris: "John I finished the paper-making book (the "other" book) a few weeks ago. Should be ready in a few months, Henry." Dr. Urabec, in addition to avid book collecting, also had a keen interest in paper-making, and made paper by hand himself.
