Item Description: Published for the University of Aberdeen by Oliver & Boyd, first edition, Edinburgh, 1955, 1955. Cloth, gilt arms on cover, 8vo, 24 cm, xii, 150 pp, 48 plates. From the blurb- "This study of early Scottish bookbinding extends from the earliest record of the craft in Scotland (1432) and the earliest known bindings executed towards the end of the same century, to 1650. Most of the bindings of the period were blind-tooled, though gold-tooled bindings for Mary, Queen of Scots, King James VI and others still survive. Details regarding elaborate embroidered bindings in velvet and silk for King James V are given from the royal accounts, but none of the bindings themselves is now extant. One chapter is devoted to the well-known armorial bindings of the mid-sixteenth century, and the emergence of a distinctively Scottish style is noted towards the end of the sixteenth century. One chapter consists of a detailed study of Francis Van Hägen, who was born in Edinburgh but whose working life was spent in Aberdeen during the years 1626-36. An alphabetical list of 85 binders in Scotland before 1650 is given in an appendix. This book, which is the first detailed survey of any period of Scottish bookbinding to be published, is the result of original research, particularly in the Libraries of the four Scottish Universities. The 48 plates are for the most part of bindings which have not previously been reproduced." Chip to head of spine, boards a little rubbed, endpapers slightly browned, otherwise Good in price-clipped dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-40848
