In presenting to the Public this new edition of the 'Bookbinder's Manual,' the Proprietor begs to state, that the whole has been carefully examined, extended, improved, and carried through the Press, by an experienced practical Binder, whose constant occupation, for a series of years, in all the branches here described, has, perhaps, rendered him the most competant person to define, in a systematic and perspicuous manner, the various matters connected with his calling. The work has already run through several editions, and is consequently so well known and appreciated, that but little need be urged in its favour. It may, however, be noticed, that whatever of novelty, in this improving age, in the art of Binding, has appeared worthy of insertion, has been carefully collated and appended. On mature consideration, it has been thought advisable to preserve the general features of the earlier editions, and even to retain the original Preface, inasmuch as the former apparently admits of no improvement, and the latter leads to identity.
