Chris -

In response to your query, Cockerell's book is a classic.  I don't know
anything about Richmond's book.  Two other titles that you might find
interesting if you can find them are:

        A History of English Craft Bookbinding Technique, B. Middleton and
        Bookbinding by Hand, Lawrence Town.

They will be hard to find.  I was able to get them through Interlibrary Loan,
but for a limited check out time.  Hope this helps.

A question:  Where in the E.R. Hamilton's catalog did you see Cockerell's
book?  I've been aiming to purchase it but never have and the price is good,
but I couldn't find it.
