English embroidered bookbindings by Cyril James Humphries Davenport. - (1899). - 113 pages

To compare the books printed by Caxton with the best work of his German or Italian contemporaries, to compare the books bound for Henry, Prince of Wales, with those bound for the Kings of France, to try to find even a dozen English books printed before I64O with woodcuts (not imported from abroad) of any real artistic merit if any one is anxious to reinforce his national modesty, here are three very efficacious methods of doing it! On the other hand, English book-collectors have always been cosmopolitan in their tastes, and without leaving England it is possible to study to some effeCt,oinf public or private libraries, the finest books almost any foreign country.
