Books are among the most previous of our civilization's achievements, and they have been prized and collected since antiquity. It is no wonder, then, that for centuries the most painstaking care has been taken to bind books with sumptuous, finely worked materials.
New, for the first time, the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. — one of the most important repositories of rare books in the United States — presents a selection of its finest bookbindings, from the 15th century to the present. Publisher's brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine and front board and faint pattern of a monogram ("FSL") in blind across front board. In original pictorial dust jacket; spine faded. Clean and tight. (Inventory #: 38581)
