Overview

In Watermarks in Paper from the South-West of France, 1560-1860 over 200 watermarks are catalogued and described. Found in notarial documents from the region of Occitanie, these papers provide an insight into the production and distribution of paper in this remote area of France. With small influx from foreign papers and influences, the watermarks and paper show a sometimes remarkably archaic character well into the eighteenth century.
