Book Description Ernest Benn Ltd., London, first edition, 1926, 1926. Cloth, 4to, 29 cm, xvi, 178, [4] pp, 64 leaves of plates (6 colour) pp. A handsomely printed and illustrated book containing five studies of early bookbindings which amount to a masterclass in bibliographical method and argument. From a review by A. W. Pollard: "The study of Filareto's bindings takes only eight pages, and seems on a first reading less important than the others. Later on the reader discovers that it is the indispensable preliminary to Mr. Hobson's greatest coup, his proof (for such it is) that all the bindings associated with the name of Demetrio Canevari (1559-1625), papal physician to Urban VII, were really made for Filareto's master, Pier Luigi Farnese. Mr. Hobson heads this study ' The Great Canevari Myth ' and enjoys himself demurely in telling the story of it, but he makes out his case point by point with beautiful precision, numbering each point, examining the case he has to destroy and numbering each assertion in this and numbering in the same way his explanations of how each assertion came to be made ; then advancing two assertions of his own (A. That the bindings are by a Roman binder; B. That none of them can be later than about 1550) and proving these, and finally linking up his arguments with those as to the books bound for Filareto and with what is known as to the Farnese badge, till the case is proved in a minimum of words. As to Maiolus he works in the same methodical fashion.". Contents: I. On a group of bindings decorated with plaquettes -- II. Sixteenth-century bindings with architectural decoration -- III. Thomae Maioli et amicorum -- IV. Apollonio Filareto and his bindings -- V. The great Canevari myth -- Appendix. A note on the date and origin of Grolier's bindings. Spine and top edge faded, wear to spine -ends and top inch of front joint, mild bruise to front board, somewhat agetoned (especially endpapers), otherwise Good. Seller Inventory # ABE-44221
