[BKARTS] Christopher Clarkson publication

There seem to be a number of bootleg xerox copies of Clarkson's Library
of Congress work floating around. In 1982 Michael Gullick's Red Gull
Press published Clarkson's own synopsis of his research entitled:

Limp Vellum Binding
and its potential as a conservation type structure
for the rebinding of early books.

This is a handsome letterpress edition (200 copies according to the
colophon) with very clear illustrations and diagrams, as well as being a
lucid exposition of Clarkson's conclusions. There aren't any copies
currently listed on ABE, but it's worth hunting for.
