Parchment was made from the skins of sheep, goats, or calves which were stretched and scraped clean to serve as a material for writing.

It was the century of Samuel Johnson’s Lives of the English Poets (1779– 81) and of the best known of all English biographies, James Boswell’s Life of Samuel Johnson (1791).
