This one-day course will include new research on the history of limp
and semi-limp stationery binding structures from 13th century Italy,
and follows their structural changes as they spread through Europe.
Some of the variations of these types of bindings from the 15th
century will be explored and their evolution followed through to
the 19th century spring-back.  A slide show of Spanish wallet
bindings will conclude the morning session.  In the afternoon these
will be a demonstration of binding a 16th century stationery book,
followed by an illustrated talk of case studies discussing some of
the problems of preserving and conserving these books and their
bindings.  These will be a small display of relevant bindings from
the PRO's collection throughout the day.
