Modern bookbindings added to the Department of Printed Books, 1974-1983

1984

Abstract

The British Library's collection of twentieth-century bookbindings has not received much publicity, overshadowed as it is by the unrivalled collections of bindings from the past. When Howard M. Nixon wrote about the English and foreign bookbindings added to the Department of Printed Books between 1963 and 1974 most emphasis was given-and rightly so-to the acquisition of older material, though the six handsome twentieth century French bindings bequeathed to the Library by Major Abbey merited and got an illustration each.
