The following two references will gives some idea of the techniques:
Middelton, B. "A History of English Craft Bookbinding Technique, Holland press,
1978, [ISBN 0 900 470 83 6]
Mitchell, J  " A Craftsman's Guide to Edge Decoration", The Standing Press,
1993, [ISBN 0 952 1626 0 1].
In the latter book the last two chapters give a description with photographs of
the techniques for colour under gold and fore-edge painting.
