Description:
London: Bernard Quaritch, 1889. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Folio. 222 pp., 1512 items described. Modern neat brown cloth (NOT ex-library). Still valuable for tracing the provenance of 1,500 notable bindings, this is the enlarged edition of Quaritch's famous Catalogue 93 (first issued in November 1888), here containing the addition of three indispensable indexes extending 22 pages printed in very small type, plus a valuable introduction on the history of bookbinding written by Bernard Quaritch himself, who was that time was considered the leading authority on the subject. The indexes: Authors and Titles; Works in Modern Languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish); Special Subjects including Americana, Liturgica, Manuscripts, Music, Romances of Chivalry, Unique Books, and Books Printed on Vellum; Owners, Book-Collectors, and Libraries; and finally an Index of Binders and Binding. Breslauer, Uses of Bookbinding Literature, p. 24.

Description:
London: Bernard Quaritch, 1897. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Folio. 172 pp., 858 items described. With 22 chromolithograph plates of bindings. Modern neat brown cloth (NOT ex-library). Still valuable for tracing the provenance of notable bindings. While technically a "bookseller's catalogue," this awe-inspiring tome commences with a perfect copy of the Mazarine (Gutenberg) Bible, laughably cheap at GBP 4000, followed by these special sections: 1. English and Scottish Bindings, A. D. 1160-1880. 2. Flemish and Dutch Bindings, 1300-1800. 3. German Bindings, 1430-1790. 4. Spanish bindings, 1250-1776. 5. Italian Bindings, 1460-1786. 6. French bindings, 1510-1880. 7. Oriental Bindings, 1500-1600. 8. Books upon binding. The Grolier Club has only the 1897 edition which lacks all the chromolithographs and consists of only 158 pp., thereby lacking the three indespensible indexes on pp. 159-172. The University of Michigan copy of the 1897 edition has been digitized and is available online, but as it is… Read more
