The Dictionary of Paper, Including Pulps, Boards, Paper Properties and Related Papermaking Terms.  
American Paper and Pulp Association
Publisher: American Paper and Pulp Association New York 1940.
Preface by Charles W. Boyce, Executive Secretary of the American Paper and Pulp Association. pp ix + 365 Hardcover. 8vo. Blue cloth. Gilt titles on spine and front cover. Minor edgewear, ink ownership inscription (Penick & Ford Ltd. NY) on front pastedown. NOTE: I was curious about what connection this business (Penrick and Ford) had to do with paper, and checked around until I found a substantial company history. It started out in the syrup business, was bought and divested in the Roosevelt trust-busting era, continued with syrups but added feed and starch to use the corn syrup byproducts. The starch was used in some paper manufacture, but the company went on to further research: "In the mid-'40s, P&F was already supplying oxidized starches for paper applications when Kesler and another P&F creative chemist, Erling Hjermstad, experimented to produce a dry starch from normal dent corn that would behave and perform as well as potato or tapioca starches. Using ethylene oxide in the process, they patented the Penford® Gums, which became the industry standard and today still command the lion's share of the dry starch specialty market in the paper industry. The name "Penford Gum" means hydroxyethylated starch to papermakers much as the brand name "Kleenex" means facial tissue to consumers."
