Period Paperhanging Techniques

Information is being sought for a proposed handbook on period paperhanging techniques. I am interested in documented working methods of eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century paperhangers. Instruction sheets, handbooks, articles in early trade magazines are all of interest, as are primary source material such as diaries, account books, letters, etc. Please advise as to content, location, and availability.
