First edition. An autobiography of one of the world's leading book restorers, binding scholars and international lecturers on bookbinding techniques. Originally published by Henry Morris at the renowned Bird & Bull Press, the author has expanded the text and added many illustrations of his most inspired bindings. In this new edition, over ninety of his bindings are illustrated, forty-six in full color. This work also offers insight into Britain's indentured apprenticeship programs of the early 20th century. Spine sunned.
