First published in 1889, "Modern Bookbinding Practically Considered" contains an interesting lecture on the subject of bookbinding by William Matthews. Bookbinding refers to the process of physically assembling a book using ordered paper sheets which are folded together into sections or left as a stack of individual sheets. This is then bound together along one edge by either sewing or using a flexible adhesive. This volume will appeal to bibliophiles and others with an interest in the history and development of binding techniques. Contents include: "An Address on Modern Bookbinding Practically Considered", "The Aldine Style", "The Maioli Style", "The Grolier Style", "The Eve Style", "The Gascon Style", "The Roger Payne Style", "Modern Design", "A Modern Design", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of bookbinding.
