Leipzig: Sammlung Bibliothekswissenschaftlicher Arbetien, 1928-1929. Blind-stamped panels are designs impressed on the leather of a cover of a book by means of a single engraved wood or metal panel stamp bearing a complete design. Panel stamps came into wider use in the later 13th century, chiefly in the Netherlands. As printing spread in the late 15th century the production of large numbers of books, sold to the purchaser in sheets, called for quicker binding. This led to the use of panel stamps and roll tools as a means of adding decoration to the covers. In France large historiated panels that could effectively embellish a whole octavo or quarto board were used during the period 1488-1528. Similar stamps were much used in Germany,particularly on pigskin covers. Haeblers work is the standard reference of these panel stamps and roll tools. Thousands of rolls and stamps are described, as are their users and manufacturers. This hard to find two-volume set is very difficult tofind, though once reprinted in the 1960s. Not in Besterman.
