             ***********************************************

I am not remembering the specifics on this,  but I think one thing
you can say about Glycerine, is that it  is very slow to really dry
out.  It finds moisture in the air and keeps itself"wet" as long as
possible. This could lead to problems with paper-based
materials...not to mention mold.

>BEAUTY FOR COMMERCE: PUBLISHERS' BOOKBINDINGS 1830-1910
>
>Early in the 19th century, the need for speed, simplicity, and economy in
>book production led to the introduction of cloth as a binding material and
>casing as a binding process. These developments, in conjunction with
>technological advances in the printing industry, led directly to the rise
>of the publishers' bookbindings: i.e., bindings designed for and
>manufactured in quantity for a publisher.
>
>This exhibit chronicles the growth of English and American publishers'
>binding from its infancy in the 1830s to its decline in the early 20th
>century. Highlighted are the distinct changes in design that reflected not
>only technical innovations in the means of book production and decoration
>but shifting social and cultural trends as well. Viewed as a group,
>publishers' bindings represent a revolution in the history of the book.
>Viewed individually, each binding offers an often gilded window to the
>fashion of its day.

>Success."
>
>When-- in the literacy explosion of the early 19th century-- demand for
>binders' leather bid fair to outstrip the supply, the industry-- searching
>for a durable substitute-- hit upon cotton cloth. The story of publishers'
>bindings between 1830 and 1910 is the saga of a struggle to counter
>critics' disappointment and to produce effective selling tools. Virtually
>nothing offered by the evolving technology was left untried-- and the
>varieties we find in attics, in antiquarian bookshops and on library
>shelves attest to the heroic struggle for attention and grace which reflect

>where they will receive parking instructions and a map of the
>campus.  Those arriving after 4pm should head for either parking structure
>5, on the corner of Montezuma and 55th St (visitor parking on levels 1 and
>2), or parking structure 6 on East Campus Dr., just off of Montezuma Road
>(visitor parking on level 2).  If at all possible, visitors should check
>out the university's map web site:  <http://www.sdsu.edu/map/>

>This work chronicles a period in American history when the ability to=20
>"write a good hand" was a key to prosperity both for the individual and for=
>=20
>the nation. In his account of the teacher-student lineage of seven master=20
>penmen, author William E. Henning effectively disproves the popular notion=
>=20
>that the United States passed through a dark age in the nineteenth century=
>=20
>during which the lettering arts were lost or ignored. Instead, we see that=
>=20
>the numbers of expert penmen abounded during this time and into the=20
>twentieth century.
>
>Henning guides the reader through the lives and careers of some of the most=
>=20
>important American penmen in history. A
>partial list of famous penmen the author covers are: Platt Rogers Spencer,=
>=20
>the Father of American Handwriting; George A. Gaskell (Spencer's gifted=20
>student), whose books and periodicals reached hundreds of thousands of=20
>students throughout the second half of the 1800s; Louis Madarasz,=20
>considered the most skillful of all writers in shaded script; Austin N.=20
>Palmer, whose method of penmanship was taught throughout American schools,=
>  etc.
>
>With over 400 illustrations, many from the author=92s father=92s collection=
>=20
>which he began in the early 1890s. An Elegant Hand offers an exciting and=20
>detailed view of the many styles of penmanship and calligraphy: Spencerian=
>=20
>Script; Ornamental Penmanship; flourished designs of birds; Copperplate;=20
>business writing (many variations); broad-pen calligraphy, especially=20
>German Text and Old English; and many other styles. The work also features=

>a glossary of terms and  a selection from the elder Henning's memoirs=20
