Random information on the term ” Ream”:
Various measures of paper quantity have been and are in use. Although there are no S.I. units such as quires and bales, there are ISO and DIN standards for the ream. Expressions used here include U.S. Customary units.
A quire of paper is a measure of paper quantity. The usual meaning is 25 sheets of the same size and quality: 1⁄20 of a ream of 500 sheets. Quires of 25 sheets are often used for machine-made paper, while quires of 24 sheets are often used for handmade or specialised paper of 480-sheet reams. (As an old UK and US measure, in some sources, a quire was originally 24 sheets.) Quires of 15, 18 or 20 sheets have also been used, depending on the type of paper.
The current word “quire” derives from OE “quair” or “guaer”, from OF “quayer”, “cayer”, (cf. modern Fr. cahier), from L. quaternum, “by fours”, “fourfold”. Later, when bookmaking switched to using paper and it became possible to easily stitch 5 to 7 sheets at a time, the association of “quaire” with “four” was quickly lost.
