Phillip J. Pirages Catalogue 61
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.
