This book by Sidney Berger tells the story of Edward Seymour and this British firm that manufactured marbled and other decorated papers for the bookbinding and related industries from about 1919-1971. Includes 20 tipped-in original examples of their many fancy papers with well researched text. Dr Berger shares the vicissitudes of the company's fortunes, personal lives of the owners and often some touching correspondences he found among its business records.
