Manual of library bookbinding practical and historical by Henry Thomas Coutts. - (1911). - 251 pages

The aim of this Manual is not to supersede the existing treatises on the craft of bookbinding, such as those by Messrs Cockerell and Zaehnsdorf, but to supplement such works by giving prominence to those phases of the subject which are of practical interest to the librarian, and incidentally to the bookbinder who specializes in library binding.

An endeavour has been made to give a succinct account of the processes of binding at the present day, by describing the methods of hand and machine binding respectively; to indicate the essential features of library binding; to describe and give actual examples of some of the best and most suitable materials for library binding; to describe the different methods of recording and checking books despatched to the binder; to give practical information on the equipment of small binderies in libraries, and on the repairing of books, as well as to give recipes, miscellaneous information, and a glossary of terms.

In preparing this work the Library Association's Professional Examinations were kept in view, with the object of affording information useful to students; for this reason an historical sketch of bookbinding has been included, which, it is hoped, will provide an adequate introduction to the subject, the information being drawn from the best sources.
