The Backstory of Wallpaper: Paper-Hangings 1650-1750; (signed by the author on the title page).

[Wallpaper]. Kelly, Robert M.

The Backstory of Wallpaper: Paper-Hangings 1650-1750; (signed by the author on the title page).

WallpaperScholar.Com Lee, MA 2015 Octavo, pp 183, indexed. b/w illustrations. 11 page bibliography.
"A carefully researched" book about wall paper, "tracing its start from wooden to fabric to paper panel hangings to the start of rolled papers." "Wallpaper's development is traced in England, France, China, Ireland and Britain's North American colonies. The author's paperhanging background (and craftsman's experience) includes a career of working with wallpapers in historic homes such as Andrew Jackson's Hermitage and the White House. The line drawings of Jean-Michel Papillion and especially illustrations of early printers and installers at work will fascinate, as small pieces of history.The fact that designs were frequently copied or very slightly altered is interesting in today's world of copyrighting everything."
