Paper-making in Europe

Paper-making in Europe was first established by the Moors in Spain and by the Arabs in Sicily ; and their paper was at first still the same oriental paper above described. In Spain it was called pergamieno de panno, cloth parchment, a title which distinguished it from the pergameno de cuero, or vellum ; and it is so described in the laws of Alphonso, of 1263. On the expulsion of the Moors, an inferior quality was produced by the less skilled Christians. From Sicily the manufacture passed over into Italy.
