A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
page attempts to record what is known about the origin
and history of Paper Cartridges. Please contact me if you
know any of this information is incorrect or if you have
any other information that should be added. Thank you.
The infpormation about the early history of Paper Cartdridges that is often quoted on the internet comes from 'The Gun and its Development' by W W Greener which was first published in London in 1881. The information shown below is taken from page 589 of the 1910 Ninth Edition.
