The history of bookbinding as a mirror of society by Mirjam Foot( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Italian and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this well illustrated survey, Dr. Mirjam Foot, an international expert in the history of bookbinding, explores the use and purpose of bookbindings - over and above protecting the texts inside them - and, by implication, the purpose of the study of the book as a physical object. She shows how the techniques of binding and decorating books reflect developments in the book trade itself, and how the production of the binding links with questions of authorship, publishing, reading and collecting; how it relates to the spread of literacy and learning, to education, and to religion, but also to economic and political circumstances and social attitudes. For anyone with an interest in the art and history of the book, this is a fascinating and authoritative study which sheds new light on many aspects of bookbinding in a broad historical context."--Jacket

Incunabula in the Westminster Abbey and Westminster School libraries by Christopher D Cook( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Westminster Abbey is closely connected with the early history of printing in England: England's first printer, William Caxton, had his workshop within the monastery walls. Both the Abbey and the adjacent Westminster School have profited by the learning and generosity of generations of bishops, deans, canons and teachers, who donated or bequeathed them their collections of incunabula. Eighty-five editions of books printed before 1501, including seventeen fragments, several of great rarity and importance, have been described in this volume.... They reflect the scholarly interests and collecting habits of their former owners, ranging widely in subject and originating from a variety of European presses. The descriptions, by Christopher D. Cook, pay much attention to copy-specific features. About half the volumes are in contemporary or near-contemporary bindings, mostly English, but several from the Continent, and these have been identified and described by Mirjam Foot. Many of the works have early annotations and/or marginal notes, bearing witness to their ownership and the use their readers made of them, as well as providing evidence for the importation of early books--bound and unbound--into England. A detailed bibliography, concordances with major catalogues of incunabula elsewhere, indexes of printers, publishers, donors and former owners (with short biographies), copy-specific features, binders and binding features, complete this useful and interesting volume"--
