Bibliography of bookbinding
A couple of weeks ago, I volunteered to compile a bibliography of books
on bookbinding in response to someone's suggestion that one of the list's
librarian subscribers do so. I thought that all I'd have to do is do a
subject search on one of the online library catalogs. I searched the
subject BOOKBINDING on OCLC and got over 4,000 hits. Changing it to
BOOKBINDING--HISTORY narrows it down some. It only retrieved 2,000 (I
think - all I remember for sure is that it was another 4 digit number).
A search of our Illinois statewide database found over 400 items. Does
anyone have a suggestion on what I should do next? I did not limit the
search to any particular time period or language (like English only).
Maybe it would be possible for those of you who have a favorite title or
two to send them to me and I can compile the list from that. Peter said
that he'd post the list for review so things can be continually added
