9780712350549: Henry Davis Gift: v. 3: A Collection of Bookbindings (Catalogue of South European Bindings)

This much anticipated third and final volume of "Henry Davis Gift" focuses on south and east European fine bindings, with additional sections on Oriental and American bindings. It includes many new identifications, and owners and binders are discussed comprehensively. Not only have the decorative features of every binding been described and illustrated, details of structure have also been described and consequently, it is now possible to compare and contrast bookbinders' practices in the various countries, as evident from this splendid collection of fine bindings.
