Thank you, Kelvyn, for the info and the link. I should have known you would have the answer.

I have to study ancient manuscript techniques to assess certain text-critical issues, and just as I am reading about how papyrus is made, a friend comes back from Egypt with a piece of it as a gift. It looks like the real thing, and I was surprised at its quality, (as I can't get completely over that conditioning of underrating the sophistication of ancient life).

So is that your impression, that the papyrus is not just a good medium but excellent for hand printed documents (considering better grades)??

(BTW -- anyone in this forum would have been completely at home with ancient publishing. The issues are all the same -- paper, font, layout, illustrations etc -- but the processes are different).
