William Rittenhouse, the first papermaker in America, built a mill in what is today Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. For almost forty years thereafter, the Rittenhouse family were the only papermakers in America. This book records the history with pictures of the Rittenhouse family from Europe to America as papermakers. (32pp. illus. Lib. Co. of Philadelphia and Friends of Hist. Rittenhouse Town., 1990.)
