Description:

small quarto, 127 pp. In May of 2000 the Grolier Club mounted the most comprehensive exhibition ever produced of nineteenth- century publishers' bookbindings, showcasing the imaginative design, rich materials, and skilled artistry of these 'mass- produced' objects. Two hundred and fifty examples from America, England and Europe have been chosen to highlight the period bounded by Waterloo and World War I, during which books became elaborate vehicles for the visual arts and technical innovation.Bindings from all industrialized countries have been included, making it possible to see stylistic and technical interchanges, compare national differences, and assess the varied roles of publishers and artists in nineteenth-century book design. Materials and techniques employed in bookbinding were extensive and diverse. Early experiments with materials included printed paper boards, silk, and what would prove to be the most practical, cotton cloth. Indeed, almost from the beginning, cloth was the preferred material for casing popular books. Leather bindings, however, continued to be produced, and, with a greatly expanding market, the use of leather was explored as imaginatively as cloth. With full- color illustrations and descriptions of all 254 books in the exhibition. With a foreword by Ruari McLean and an afterword by Sue Allen. A very fine, clean copy without flaw. First Edition, Limited to 500 hardbound copies. Bookseller Inventory #
