Ring of Honor for Paper History

 

For decades, research into paper history has increasingly become an auxiliary discipline of general writing and book research, and has thus become a scientific term whose meaning is unanimously clear. Scholars of all countries, in quiet research and passionate dedication, seek to shed light on the many unanswered questions that have arisen with the origin of the paper, the way it was produced in each country, and its migration from the Far East through the Islamic cultural empire The Christian countries are connected to America over the course of two millennia and its origin, the watermark. - The tasks are so many that an individual can only pick up and work on subdivisions, areas, as they arise for him, as he has been researched into the field of matter. The editors come from the most varied professions and consequently intervene quite individually in the wheel of research, and in no case the charge may be made against them, they are dilettantes or lovers who would have accepted such tasks only on a whim. On the contrary, the free play of the forces is quite invigorating here. A researcher can throw the balls to the other, so that certain events can be pursued in certain countries or at certain times on the basis of such stimulation, because it is indeed to grasp the whole, which is only due to lengthy research activity in the individual local areas or Subject areas is possible.

The Board of Trustees of the Paper History Research Center decided in 1954 to recognize the activities of outstanding contemporary paper historians and patrons by awarding a golden ring of honor. The Ehrenring, which was created in the workshop of the goldsmith Wortmann in Cologne, bears the old watermark P on its display side as the landmark of the Paper History Research Center. This ring is not a single piece like the famous Gutenberg Ring, which moves from bearer to bearer. He is awarded permanent recognition by the ZELLCHEMING Board on the proposal of the Honorable Member of the Commission.
