White Paper

Although the first form be printed off, yet pressmen erroneously call that heap white paper, till the reiteration be printed. — M.

This application of the term is now wearing away; and generally speaking, it is only used for paper not printed upon; when the pressmen are printing the first form of a sheet, or the first side of a half sheet, they say they are working the white paper.
