Gosden, Thomas ( 1780-1840 )

An English bookbinder, book collector, bookseller, and publisher, known as the "sporting binder," because most of his bindings were of books devoted to sports. The peculiarity of his style and the reason he is remembered is that he used tools cut in the forms of fish, reels, rods, baskets, and sportsmen. (50 , 339 )
