I'm working on a project regarding the history of the book and
I found a great website regarding the chronological history of the book =
at www.xs4all.nl/~knops/timetab.html which gives a time line of =
books/binding/printing. =20

I would like to insert two items for my own reference,and am hoping =
someone out there would know when Coptic stitch first appears (exposed =
sewing of signatures) and when spines were first added to book binding.  =


Thanks
