Publications on watermarks and bookbindings

From: Henry Grunder <hgrunder>

As our personal attention spans become ever more overloaded, cause
us to cope by narrowing the literature we can scan, there is the
chance that some followers of the DistList may not regularly read
The Book Collector (GB), thereby missing in the Spring 1998 number
the ad for William E. Coleman's

    Watermarks in the Manuscripts of Boccaccio's Il Teseida: A
    Codicological Study and Album (Firenze: Olschki, 1997).

The blurb at <URL:> is an abbreviated version
of the full-page one in BC. The latter may better indicate the
breadth of interest, understated by the title.

It is a notice in BC rather than an ad which informs us of

    Guide to the Census of Western Medieval Binding Structures.

This, it should be understood, is not such a census proper but
rather the instruction manual for the conduct of such census.
Available from Dr Jenny Shepherd, at Lucy Cavendish College,
Cambridge CB3 OBU, price 8 GBP.
