Bookbinding & conservation by hand : a working guide by Laura S Young( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed as a working guide in the field of hand bookbinding and book conservation. It is intended as a practical manual for teachers and their students; as an instruction guide to be followed by the beginner attempting to learn binding on his or her own; and as a ready reference for experienced binders, book collectors, book dealers, and librarians. Hand bookbinding in the United States has been influenced primarily by the English, French, and German schools of binding. The techniques described in this volume follow in principle the German school and, to the best of the author's knowledge, this is the first book in which these binding practices have appeared in English. German techniques move in a logical sequence and can be executed efficiently
