HINCKLEY, C.T. - A Day at the Bookbindery of Lippincott, Grambo, & Co.

Title: A Day at the Bookbindery of Lippincott, Grambo, & Co.
Description: Oak Knoll Books, New Castle DE, 1988. Small folio; decorated stapled wrappers; 16pp., on laid paper, with many engravings. Minor wear; wrapper mildly sunned and the bottom corner slightly bumped. Near fine. A Christmas release from the famous Oak Knoll Books company, this is a facsimile reprint of an 1852 article from the Godey's Lady's Book of Philadelphia, showing the daily round of activity at Lippincot's bookbindery. The article is aimed at diverting and informing ladies of the day and doesn't stint on detail: this is a peek backwards in time to the early years of mass book construction and dissemination. One of a limited print run of only 750 copies.
