References for describing bindings

Could anyone on this list please recommend a reference work to help 
me in doing descriptive local cataloging of private press books?  I 
often run into questions about whether a particular type of binding 
has a particular name associated with it (or whether I can get away 
with calling it, say, "individual leaves in cardboard wrapper, held together 
by a single loop of fancy blue nylon cord passed through a hole in 
the top corner of the spine)."

Thank you for any help you can provide.
