The British bindings in the Henry Davis gift



WHEN Henry Davis, C.B.E. died on 10 January 1977 the majority of his magnificent collection of bookbindings joined those already on exhibition in the British Library. The Gift, which comprises approximately 800 decorated bookbindings and 260 reference books is too extensive and too varied to receive proper justice in a series of articles, but while a full-dress catalogue is in preparation, a few high spots may be worth a preliminary airing.
