Featuring Fine Books on Various Subjects, from the 15th - 20th Centuries. With a Small Selection of Single Printed and Manuscript Leaves
These 20 items represent the wide range of works we carry, from Medieval manuscripts to early printing, important illustrated books, fine bindings, fore-edge painting, modern private press books, and first editions.
This is a different kind of catalogue devoted to fine and historic bindings. The arrangement of this catalogue departs from its predecessors in that items are listed chronologically, based on the approximate date of their bindings. This approach has been adopted with the hope that it might promote an understanding of the evolution of binding styles and techniques over the course of 500 years and that, consequently, the catalogue might be useful for reference.
