Reprint of the 2nd edition of 1979. The breadth of this work is remarkable. Encyclopedia contains almost 4,000 terms and definitions used in bookbinding, printing, papermaking and the book trade. Biographical details of printers, authors, bookbinders and bibliophiles are included as well as precise notes on machinery and equipment, famous books, printing societies, book-related organizations, customs of the trade and other related information. This work aims at providing a reference companion to be constantly available during the study or processes of bookmaking and is particularly essential for the bibliophile, apprentice printer and binder, publisher, bookseller, papermaker or librarian. However, all those involved in the profession or study of books and publishing will find this book indispensable.
