This early work on bookbinding is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains detailed instructions of the methods and materials involved in book preservation and binding. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for bookbinders and librarians. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A Handbook for Amateurs Bookbinders & Librarians Douglas Cockerell Douglas Bennett Cockerell (1870-1945) was a British bookbinder who revolutionised modern bookbinding. At fifteen he went to Canada and worked as a farm hand, a wool carder, and a bank clerk. In 1891 he returned to England and was introduced to the book arts by his brother Sydney, a British museum curator, collector, and well-connected figure in the literary world and the private secretary to William Morris. In 1893, Douglas was apprenticed to Thomas J. Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery. There he learned the importance of combining quality materials with technical skill and creativity. He founded his own bindery in London in 1897 and took up a teaching position at the London County Council Central School of Arts and Crafts. His works include: Bookbinding, and the Care of Books (1901), Some Notes on Bookbinding (1929) and Bookbinding as a School Subject (1939). We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
