A history of english craft bookbinding technique

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The book was originally modestly conceived as an aid for those students at Technical Colleges who were expected to produce a thesis on some subject connected with the history of binding techniques on which no information was available in print. It has developed into something far more important: the first attempt to chart the history of English bookbinding in all its technical aspects . as such, it makes an important step forward in bookbinding research.

It also shows a praiseworthy change of emphasis in dealing as fully with the ordinary commercial varieties of binding as with the highly decorated "extra" types which have in the past received all the attention.

Condition: Dust Jacket is worn a torn on both top and bottom, some rubbing marks present and a few small stains also price clipped. Interior is crisp and clean with a tight binding
