In the past, studies of the records of bookbinding have been specially concerned with the exterior ornament. This book focuses interest typically on the bodily aspects of the binding and its creation concepts. It is an extended version of a chain of lectures delivered with the aid of the author even as Visiting Professor at the University of Amsterdam in 1987, supplemented with the consequences of ten years of in depth research in primary libraries at the Continent, the UK and the USA. It surveys the evolution of binding systems from the introduction of the codex two thousand years ago to the near of the Middle Ages. Part I opinions the scanty physical evidence from the Mediterranean background, the early Coptic, Islamic and Ethiopian binding systems and their interrelation with the ones of the Byzantine realm. Part II is devoted to an in depth evaluation of Western binding strategies, distinguishing the carolingian, romanesque and gothic wooden-board bindings as the principle typological entities; their structure and feature is as compared with those of contemporary limp bindings. The ebook is illustrated with over two hundred drawings and pix and carries a comprehensive bibliography.
