English Bookbindings added to the Department of Printed Books 1963 to 1974

Howard M. Nixon

Abstract

THE most important acquisition of bookbindings during this period has unquestionably been that of the Henry Davis Collection. It is, indeed, far the most important gift of this nature that the Department has ever received, being almost the whole of one of the three great collections of bookbindings made in England during this century, the others being those of Major J.R. Abbey and of the Broxbourne Library formed by Albert Ehrman.
