English Embroidered Bookbindings eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 94 pages of information about English Embroidered Bookbindings.

The back has four panels, in each of which is an arabesque design in coloured silks and gold cord or braid.  Although this book is comparatively late, it is in a bad condition, and shows much wear; the design also is weak, and the workmanship inferior.
