Two quarto volumes. xii, 407; xiv, 490pp. One of nine numbered sets specially bound by James Brockman, with additional plates and two samples of marbled paper. Illustrated throughout, with color plates and black & white photographs showing examples of bindings, patterns, tools, and more. Personally inscribed by the author, Marianne Tidcombe, to the noted collector Charles Gould, "Whose collection of Doves Press was indeed enough to 'knock my socks off.'" More than simple bibliographies, these volumes provide insight into Cobden-Sanderson's development and influence as an artist, as well as into the history of the Doves Bindery, and give detailed descriptive entries for each binding. Two essential works on the art of bookbinding, centering on one of its most influential figures. Fine in quarter vellum and blue boards, housed together in a slipcase. Prospectuses for The Doves Bindery laid in. Bookseller Inventory #
