Re: Islamic bindings

Another two arabic book titles you may be interested in are:  The Arabic Book
by Johannes Pedersen translated by Geoffrey French, Princeton Univ Press, 1984;
and Art de la Reliure et de la Dorure by Abu el-Abbas Ahmed ben Mohammed
es-Sofiani, text is in arabic with an index of technical terms in French by P
Picard, Librarire Orientaliste Paul Geuthner, 1925.

Also one on paper is:  Arab Paper by Joseph von Karabacek, 1887, translated by
Don Baker and Suzy Ditmar, Islington books, London, 1991?.

Best of luck, patrick

The best sources I know of for Islamic bindings are Gulnar H. Bosch's 1952
Ph.D. thesis, _Islamic Bookbindings_ (my copy is a microfilm; Thesis 1472
from the University of Chicago, The Joseph Regenstein Library, Dept. of
Photoduplication, 100 East 57th St., Chicago, IL  60637), and _Islamic
Bindings & Bookmaking_, catalogue of an exhibition at the Oriental
Institute, the University of Chicago, 1981, by Gulnar Bosch, John Carswell,
and Guy Petherbridge.

The exhibit catalogue contains an excellent, illustrated treatise on
Islamic bookbinding materials and techniques.  For information about
Islamic paper see note 101 (p. 79) in the catalogue, or locate a copy of
M.A. Kagitci's _Historical Study of paper Industry in Turkey_, Istanbul,
1976, p. 18.
