Bibliography - Bookbinding

This bibliography reflects the beginnings of my attempt to get a handle on my personal reference library. Groupings are by general category (bookbinding, conservation, exhibition catalogs...) and then sorted by author. Currently only the "bookbinding manuals" are online. This will be followed in due course by the book and paper conservation and preservation manuals...

The master file itself is in a FileMaker Pro database. Fields not for public consumption and duplicate records have been deleted for the web version. The description field is drawn from the table of contents of the book and should give a general idea of what the book is about, and in some cases may be subjective. As my collections spans the late 19th - 21st centuries, and given the fact that perceptions of the merit of techniques have evolved, the date may, or may not be important for the user's needs. This bibliography is a work in progress, and I welcome comments on it.
