9780838903919: The Restoration of Leather Bindings (Ltp Publications ; No. 20)

The premise of "The Restoration of Leather Bindings" (first edition, 1972) is that restoration of old and worn bookbindings is more than a technical skill. Rather, it is a specialized craft that calls for an understanding of historical methods, specific technical terms, and aesthetic styles in order to be developed fully. This second edition continues from this premise and acts as an extensive instruction manual for those who practice or wish to practice leather bookbinding restoration.

Review:

Occasionally a reviewer is presented with a volume which he knows instantly from author and subject he is going to praise. The Restoration of Leather Bindings by Bernard Middleton is such a work. Middleton is pre-eminent as practitioner, demonstrator, and writer on this subject. Restoration is the authoritative work on leather binding repair. It should be required reading for anyone who owns or is responsible for the care of valuable leather binding. --Frank Broomhead

"The definitive work on the subject." --Robert Salisbury
