These shelves highlight the bindery work of the “hand” era — both typical and exceptional, usually in leather.  Later “fine” binders also appear here.  We includesome publisher's cloth and leather machine-era bindings of unusual interest or quality; and at times we'll even parade a pre–World War I paper binding here, just to remind you (and ourselves) that those were out there!
