Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Catalogue of Books From the Libraries: Or Collections of Celebrated Bibliophiles, and Illustrious Persons of the Past With Arms or Devices Upon the Bindings With the introduction, early in the sixteenth century, of bookbindings in morocco and calf-skin, susceptible of delicate and elaborate ornamentation, came the custom, with the more wealthy bibliophile, of causing his name, monogram, or arms to be stamped upon the sides as part of the decoration. With the revival of art and letters came also that of individuality, but we have to regret that the artists so often forgot to record themselves; more mindful of their work and the glorification of their patrons than of their own merit. It is not an idle curiosity which seeks to know something of the men who bound and decorated the fine old books of the sixteenth century, and worked upon them the names of Maioli and Grolier, or the armsand mottoes of Francois I, Henri II, or Diane de Poi tiers. It is a strange fate which links illustrious names with those of the modest bookbinders Clovis Eve, Le Gascon, Boyer, and their successors, making them, even after a lapse of three hundred years, as household words to every lover of books. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition. We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully; any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
