Book Description

Books as they were meant to be' has always been a passion of mine and I'm delighted to be bringing a selection of cloth and paper publisher's bindings to the fair. For the uninitiated, these books were made as you see them here. They were consciously designed to temp customers by using the latest technologies (colour printing, gilt designs and so on ) and the most fashionable colours and textures of cloth. The dates of the ones shown range from 1847 to 1890, with prices in the £20 to £40 range. And if you're a fan with gaps in your collection, please do get in touch!
