How Thick is the Paper in Our Original 1782 Aitken Bible?

The paper in our original 1782 Robert Aitken Bible of the Revolution is about 1/2 the thickness of the paper that we normally use in our books.  The first photo is of us zeroing the micrometer.  We don’t have a spanner wrench to make the zero adjustment so we will have to subtract about .0003 from each of our readings.  The second photo is of this Bible printed on my normal paper.  The rest that follow are photos of us measuring our original Aiken Bible.  Scroll down to see what may be the rarest photos on the planet; a micrometer measuring an original 1782 Bible: courtesy of  Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Librarian, James Darlack.

zero = .0003

our normal paper = .0048
