[POCKET SUNDIAL].
[A portable diptych dial made in Germany, probably at the end of the 18th century].
A charming pocket sundial with a string gnomon (pointer), adjustable for accuracy at any latitude. Size: 4 x 65, cm. Internally engraved paper over wood with hand coloured faces, compass bowl under glass. Upper cover with pasted-on engraved list of cities within decorated border (stained and with some loss). In the 16th and 17th centuries sundials, before the reliable watches were invented, were the only way that people could tell the time accurately. The diptych dials are able to tell the time from the position of the sun in the sky. The sun casts the shadow of a spike called the "gnomon" (in this case a string) onto a series of lines that have been calibrated to show the hours in the day.

KOOPS, MATTHIAS:
Historical Account of the Substances which have been used to Describe Events, and to Convey Ideas, from the Earliest Date to the Invention of Paper. London, Printed by Jaques & Co., 1801.
Pp. 274. With engraved frontispiece of an Egyptian papyrus. Old ownership signature on title. Contemporary calf on marbled boards, expertly rebacked to style, with title label. The second, revised and much enlarged edition (first 1800). This edition was printed on remanufactured white paper and became the first book printed on recycled paper in the West! The appendix (pp. 259-274) is printed on paper made from wood pulp. Matthias Koops was a pioneer of mechanical paper production with great experience of manufacturing from waste paper at Neckinger mill in South London. He invented new processes for making paper from wood pulp rather than from rags, and for recycling paper itself so it could be used for printing. Between 1800 and 1801 Koops was granted three patents for making paper from a number of unusual substances. The first edition of this work was printed entirely on yellow paper made from straw. This version of the second edition was printed on recycled paper with the exception of the frontispiece which was printed on straw paper. It includes much statistical information about the paper industry in Britain and elsewhere in Europe at the time. Dard Hunter (1947), pp. 332-40, 375-6, & p. 523. Cf. Bigmore & Wyman p. 399.
