A huge paper press, which was built in 1790 and used until recently, stands at the door. Across the room is a queer little vat, also used in paper-nuiking, on which are in.scril)ed Chinese characters testifying that paper was invented by T ' sai Lun in A.D. 105. There are samples of handmade paper, some made of fir, some of bamboo, models of paper mills, old prints, and an historic set of water-mark bank- notes which were submitted to the Director of the Bank of Kngland in 181!) by Sir ^^ ' illianl Congreve and which were the fore-runners of the present Engli.sh bank notes. Mr. Ilimter, the collector, and author of several books on paper- nuiking, presents in his museum a new and enlightening ])icture of an important industry. Fidly as imjjortant as its nniseums, its laboratories, and its brilliant instructing staff and ])robably more spectacular, are Technology ' s developments in scientific research.
