I thought this book might be of interest to those who are into the history of things related to fountain pens.

On the Ossie

Tasmania and the global fountain pen industry!
For a time in the early 1900s The Waratah and Adamsfield districts held the world monopoly on osmiridium. An alloy more valuable than gold (and used to tip gold nibs), Tasmanian osmiridium became a signatory to startling world events as well as making household fortunes.

"When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes."

Erasmus, (1466 - 1536)
