Book Description Bibliographical Society, London, first edition, 1944, 1944. Printed wrappers, small 4to, 111 pp, plates. A pioneering study of English blind-stamped panels. Although J B Oldham wrote a much larger volume on the subject a few years later, where, he has nothing to add to Hobson ( as , for example, on "the Indulgence Binder, the Scales Binder, the Demon Binder, and the binder who worked for Rood and Hunte", he simply refers to Hobson's work, so that while Oldham is the standard work on English blind-stamped panels, Hobson is still required reading in this field. From the introduction: "Towards the end of the fifteenth century the decoration of European leather bindings was changed by three novelties - the invention of the roll, the introduction of gold-tooling, and the diffusion of the panel stamp. The panel made it possible to get pictorial effects hitherto unobtainable except by the cuir-ciselé method, and it radically altered the technique of binding decoration. Small tools, whether used in blind or gold, have a tang at the back which fits into a wooden handle, and are impressed by hand; the panel has a flat back, is attached to a block, and must be stamped with a press. Hence a binder who used panels required a blocking-press - a much larger and more expensive machine than the simple instruments which were all that he had needed previously; hence too, the use of a press led to the distinction between hand work and machine work - between tooled and stamped bindings - between la reliure à petits fers and la reliure industrielle et commerciale - which runs through all the later history of the craft." Contents: Introductory; The First Period : 1485-1509; Appendix I : The Binding of the Corpus Christi College Speculum; The Second Period : 1510-1535; Ruwe, Spierinck & Reynes; Panels with the Royal Arms; 3. Other signed panels; 4. Unsigned panels; Appendix II : The Miracle of St. Nicholas and the Très Clerici; Appendix III : Jean Norvins and his panels; The Third Period : 1535-1555; Appendix IV : Thomas Godfray and the Binder F. G. or T. G.; Some Problems and Conclusions; Appendix V : Reproductions of English Panels; Indexes; Addenda & Corrigenda. (Supplement to the Bibliographical Society's Transactions; No.17.) Wrappers slightly browned, contents mildly agetoned, a Good unopened copy. Seller Inventory # ABE-42558
