Comment: All proceeds go to CHARITY. A fascinating history of the makers of Bookbinding Tools. Cover has some light markings on front and back, its corners worn incredibly slightly. With the exception of very few inscriptions, pages themselves immaculate and crisp.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By N. Tasker on 13 Oct. 2009
Format: Hardcover
A piece of loving research into the makers of brass tools used by bookbinders since the 18th century, in extraordinary historical detail. Covers British, European and American makers, with soot prints of touchmarks.
The book itself is splendidly printed and bound, a pleasant rarity in these days when so-called 'hard cover' editions are frequently no more than an unsewn glue-bound paperback with inadequately attached boards. This volume is a pleasure both to read and to handle.
