Re: Medieval Bookbinding

The Public Records Office in London published _Doomsday Rebound_
back about 1986, and there was an earlier pamphlet.

Bernard Middleton's _History of English Craft Bookbinding Technique_ is
useful, and there are a couple of good articles in the British journal,
_The Library_  "The Construction of English Twelfth-Century Bindings"
(Fifth Series, Vol. XVII, No. 1, March 1962) and, "Changes in the Style
of Bookbinding, 1550-1830" (Fifth Series, vol. XI, No. 2, June 1956)
both written by Graham Pollard.

Also, _Islamic Bindings & Bookmaking_ by Gulnar Bosch, John Carswell, and
Guy Petherbridge, published by the Oriental Institute Museum, Univ. of Chicago,
in 1981.
