Here's a 1952 definition of sugar paper from Labarre's Dictionary...

...a common quality of wrapping paper, blue (formerly referred to as 'sug=
ar
blues' and dyed with logwood) or purple (formerly also white...) made
principally from waste paper, and  used, as its name implies, for sugar
bags.  At the London Exhibition of 1851, van Gelder exhibited a

Some of the blue paper covered books of the 18th and 19th century are mad=
e
with sugar paper (used for wrappers or as board covering material). =
