"Bookbinding: It's Background and Technique" by Edith Diehl,
Published by Dover is a good beginning. It gives history and how
to's. The history is especially good. The Dover Edition combines
into one what was originally two volumes. Any city library might very
well carry it.
In the area of techniques I think Arthur Johnson's "Manual of
Bookbinding", published by Thames and Hudson and "The Restoration of
Leather Bindings" by Bernard Middleton, part of the Library Technology
Program published by the ALA in Chicago are good introductions.
