Book Description

Originally published in  1938, Arnett's Bibliopegia was one of the first manuals of bookbinding to be published in Britain, and is both more significant than the Cowie manual before it, and illustrated. Bibliopegia appeared at a time of immense changes in the structure of the trade which were brought about by the introduction of new techniques and equipment, and this in turn was precipitated by the rapid evolution of industry and society in general. This book provides an interesting insight into early nineteenth-century English binding practices.
