Re: Early instructions for cloth case binding?



Jeff,

Though not quite what you requested, the following may add some
perspective/leads.

Prideaux "An Historical Sketch of Bookbinding" pp.101 & 140 (Garland Press
reprint).

"Silk, velvet and embroidery which had been in use from a very early period
were extensively used for royal bindings from the time of Queen Elizabeth,
and throughout the Stuart period, particularly on books of devotion."

"EMBROIDERED BOOK COVERS. The history of the rise and fall of embroidery is
as interesting as the rise and fall of other arts. During the Middle Ages it
was as seriously pursued as any of the higher ones that at various times and
in various places have been prosecuted throughout the ages..."

Subject: Early instructions for cloth case binding?

Does anyone know the earliest bookbinding manual that has  
instructions for making a cloth case binding?  The earliest I have  
found is a brief passage in John Hannett's "Bibliopegia", 6th edition  
1865.

Thanks,

Jeff Peachey
