The universal magazine was a successful eighteenth-centuru magazine devoted to serious aritcles, with engraved plates. One of these was the first illustrated account of paper making in England , published in 1752. It is reprinted with the first English translation of J. de la Lande's 'L'Art de Faire le Papier'. This great work was published in 1761 and translated into English in 1762 and 1763.
