Justus Claproth (1728 - 1805) was a German jurist, or teacher of law, and inventor of the deinking process of recycled paper. Before the invention of the paper machine in 1799 the most common fibre source was recycled fibres from used textiles. The rags were from hemp, linen and cotton. It was not until the introduction of wood pulp in 1843 that paper production were independent of recycled materials. The process for removing printing inks from recycled paper was invented by Justus Claproth in 1774. He practiced together with German paper producer Johann Engelhard Schmid. Today this method is called deinking.

[London: Elizabeth Stuart, 1794.]
Engraving. 360 x 510mm, 14 x 20". Trimmed to plate at top, large margins on 3 sides..
A view of the exterior of the Temple of Apollo, Corinth, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett. Stuart (1713–88) and Revett (1720–1804) joined Gavin Hamillton and Matthew Brettingham on a Grand Tour of Italy, the Balkans & Greece between 1748-55. On their return they started work on the 'Antiquities', which was the first accurate survey of the surviving classical buildings of Athens, with the first volume published in 1762, the second 1789, third 1794, fourth 1816 and fifth 1830 (nearly 80 years after the first). The work was incredibly influential, fueling the Greek revivalist style in 18th-century English architecture. The attention to detail was such that it attracted the attention of Hogarth, who satirised the work with his 'Five Orders of Periwig'.
Stuart's gouache of the temple is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, RIBA Library Drawings Collection, SD146/2.
