SELECTED BINDINGS FROM THE GENNADIUS LIBRARY THIRTY-EIGHT...
by Paton, Lucy Allen
First edition, limited to 300 numbered copies. (S-K 960; not in Brenni). The Gennadius collection contained books having a connection, direct or indirect, with Greece and the Greek people. However, it also contained 600+ historic and artistic bindings which show "...the art of bookbinding through some of its most definitely recognised stages...". The earliest binding in this catalogue is from the 15th century, but the library was rich in early Venetian bindings and gold-tooled French bindings from the 16th & 17th centuries. Superbly illustrated catalogue. The 38 plates are done in brilliant chromolithography and describe books such as a 15th-century Venetian calf binding, a number of Greek monastic bindings, bindings by Clovis Eve, Antoine Ruette, Derome, Padeloup, Mearne, and others. Ink inscription in corner of free endpaper.
