The Art of Bookbinding

Joseph W. ZAEHNSDORF (1853 - 1930)

This handbook explains the art of bookbinding and simultaneously reminds us what a complex technology is to make books! Zaehnsdorf, bookbinder and son of a bookbinder, made this second edition of his book to enlighten amateurs and tradesmen alike. The whole process of binding a book and the required equipment are carefully explained to the reader. (Summary by kathrinee)
