Pittsburgh: Hunt Institute, 1979,

First Edition. octavo, boards. (130)pp. Hunt Institute, Item #6027

Contains annotated entries and illustrations of 92 fine bindings from the 1 6th to 20th centuries. Issued in conjunction with a 1979 exhibit at Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, the book functions well as a stand- alone text nearly twenty years later. It serves as a wonderful introductory text to the art of bookbinding. Bernard Middleton contributes the book's foreword. In "Cobden-Sanderson and the Arts and Crafts movement, " Marianne Tidcombe details the history of bookbinding and the role of T. J. Cobden-Sanderson. Jean Gunner's "Techniques iin rebinding books at the Hunt Institute" outlines the Institute's approach to bookbinding and preservation. The book contains a detailed description and color or black- and-white photos of each book in the exhibit. Very fine clean copy.
