About This Item

Book. Good. Binding see description. London, 1980. xxvi,414pp. With hundreds of plates and rubbings. Cloth. Dustjacket.*The output of the Edingburgh binders James and William Scott stands out in the work of eighteenth-century Scottish bookbinders. Though few William Scott bindings are known today, a substantial number of James' bindings have survived: his work was characterised by its clean break from the Scottish geometrical style of binding ornament towards a style aimed at the kind of people who would be the patrons of Chippendale or Adam and might be expected to want to won bookbindings which would fittingly adorn their houses. This work gives detailed descriptions of all known Scott bindings and includes full-page reproductions of all but a few. It also examines in detail (and reproduces) the tools and rolls employed. 0.
