'œIn this bibliography, bookbinding comprises anything that covers the pages of a codex book or the form of the book most familiar to us. It begins with reference works and continues with such topics as bookbinding design, materials, machines, and tools, decoration, a chronological history, history by individual countries, care and repair of bindings. Checklists of titles are included for libraries that may wish to improve their collection. An alphabetical list of some 550 binders, art designers, and decorators provides brief biographical information and augments those names in the bibliography itself.''
