The Platinotype Company's 'Palladiotype' paper, ca. 1917

Introduced commercially by William Willis in 1917 as a substitute for printing in platinum, whose use was embargoed by wartime government, palladium has since grown in its application, and is now widely practised. Does any collection have a copy of the Platinotype Company's original instructions for the use of their commercial Palladiotype paper, or any other relevant information, please? I am researching the early history, use and problems of the process.
