<p style='text-align: justify;'><p>Another Jonathan Pindar binding made ca.1680 (cf <a href='/view/PR-C-AST-00004-00028-B'>C*.4.28(B)</a>) to the standard pattern, chosen to illustrate the fact that the expertise with which tooling was applied to bindings like this was very variable. Lines are not always straight, or neatly cornered, and (as here) the tools were often too hot when applied to the leather, leaving impressions which are blackened, smudged, or just messy.</p><p>Pasteboards, covered with mid-brown calfskin, blind-tooled. Simply blind-tooled spine, with later labelling; narrow blind roll round board edges; red sprinkled leaf edges; plain paper flyleaves and stubs, separate plain paper pastedowns.</p><p>Dr David Pearson</p></p>
