Turin, Centro Studi Piemontesi, 1989
(26 cm), 183 (1) pp., 8 colour and 32 black & white plates, advertisements. Publisher’s printed wrapper, pictorial dust jacket. - Building upon the work of Giuseppe Morazzoni, La rilegatura piernontese nel ‘700 (1929), the author makes use of a mass of newly discovered archival evidence to identify the craftsmen producing fine bindings in Piedmont. Some fifty libraries have been explored and many bindings are convincingly attributed. ¶ Very good, unmarked copy.
