Shellac Archive Arises!

Shellac Archive Banner

After many moons of hibernation the Shellac Archive is back among the living!  If I can get/keep my act together there will be a new posting every week or so until I have exhausted my 8,000 page archive (the page number is estimated, I have not literally counted every page; it might be more, it might be less).  I think I already have about 200 more articles scanned, needing to be formatted and readied for posting.

This offering is the chapter “Natural Spirit Varnish Resins” from the most excellent H.W. Chatfield book Varnish Constituents (1953).  As you might expect the chapter places great emphasis on shellac.
