I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in repairing an old volume and binding with leather, or someone who is advancing through bookbinding and wants to get into making more traditional leather books. Although, the type of books shown basically REQUIRE a press. It is incredibly difficult to achieve the quality and type of book that they are talking about in this book without a book press. So if this is your first start, and you don't have the cash to throw in on a new bookbinder's press, I would look at "Hand Bookbinding - A Manual of Instruction" or one of Keith A. Smith's books...
ABC of Leather Bookbinding captures a time-honored method of fine binding. This method was created and perfected by masters in the craft. As a unique reference work, this manual belongs on the shelves of students, conservators, and binding historians.
142 pages, illustrated, Softcover.
It is a good reference for those interested in classical bookbinding.
