Cambridge Bookbindings

<p style='text-align: justify;'><p>Another typical example of straightforward late seventeenth-century Cambridge binding work, decorated with a fleuron which was in use ca.1690-1720. The pastedowns are printed fragments from a late seventeenth-century book; Cambridge binders regularly used printed waste in this way until the turn of the eighteenth century.</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 pastedowns of printed waste.</p><p>Dr David Pearson</p></p>
