Bookbinding' refers to the process of physically assembling a book using ordered paper sheets which are folded together into sections or left as a stack of individual sheets. This is then bound together along one edge by either sewing or using a flexible adhesive. First published in 1916, This volume explores the subject of book binding with special reference to binderies associated with libraries, exploring why, how, where, and by whom books have traditionally been bound or re-bound. Contents include: "Introduction", "Equipment and Staff", "General Policy", "How Books are Damaged", "Paper Editions", "Methods", "Sewing", "Cover Materials", "Reference Books", "Sets", "Special Collections", "Reinforcing", "Periodicals", "Fine Binding", "Lettering", "Missing Leaves", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of bookbinding.
