Order Nr. 5988

S-K 7039. First edition. Spine faded. An excellent exhibition catalogue of this master bookbinder's work. Arno Werner was trained in Germany and his work reflects the German insistence on fine craftsmanship, the fundamental protective purpose of the binding, and the historical relevance of the binding to the book itself. From the private reference library of Dorothy Sloan with a commemorative bookplate loosely inserted.
