Re: [BKARTS] book cloth (was animal hide glue)



There is an essay in Bookbinding in America; Three Essays, Bowker,
1967, by Joseph W. Rogers called the Rise of American Edition Binding.
This essay has some helpful information on the development of book
cloth as it is used for books.

Oh, dear, I don't know the correct terminology.  What I am seeing in
the
internet samples and catalogue pages is a fabric that has no design
woven into or stamped onto the cloth, with the warp and weft threads
being simply at right angles to each other.


I have been picking up books about bookbinding as I can find (and afford) them, but most of what I see is geared toward the very early bindings and seem to stop at the 18th c. So, I don't have much to go on except my own observations at this point. Any suggestions about early-to-mid 19th century cloth binding references? Greatly appreciated, if you have them!
