      Bookbinders At Work

      By Mirjam M. Foot



      The role of the bookbinder in the production of saleable books and the
      significance of the binding in all its details, both structural and
      decorative, have often been disregarded or marginalized by bibliographers.
      In this book Dr. Mirjam Foot sets out to reverse the trend by establishing
      working binders, and their materials and tools as an essential part of the
      production cycle she reveals the inadequacy of bibliographical descriptions
      that lack essential binding information.

      Dr. Foot has based her analysis of the role of the binder (which
      entails 153 tasks, according to one German authority) on a number of primary
      sources, manuals and descriptions of bookbinding practice of the sixteenth,
      seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, mainly from France, Germany, the
      Netherlands and Britain. She draws on these manuals, as well as on actual
      examples of bound books, for her many illustrations.

      The result is a lucid and very detailed description of binding
      practice which will be invaluable to bookbinders, bibliographers,
      antiquarian booksellers and historians.

      Co-published with The British Library.
