    Recent Studies on Books Printed 1660-1820 as Physical Objects: Including Binding, Paper

    and Papermaking, Printing, & Typography (1986-2007)

    This bibliography surveys scholarship published from 1986 to 2007 concerning the physical features of printed materials produced c. 1660-1820. It is most inclusive for the years 1990-2006, in consequence of my compiling studies of that period for Section 1--"Printing and Bibliographical Studies"- -of ECCB: Eighteenth-Century Current Bibliography. Included are studies of particular books, editions and issues, bindings, paper, and type; also covered are studies of bookbinding, papermaking and typefounding as arts and studies of materials of production, as printing presses. For the English-speaking world, Philip Gaskell's A New Introduction to Bibliography (1972) remains the first step in such inquiries. Note that, although studies of bookbinding, papermaking and typography as industries or trades are included, studies of individuals in the bookbinding and type-founding trades have usually been placed in a bibliography on "Printers & Publishers and Publishing" that I will be posted at BIBSITE in the near future. I have listed related studies excluded here in my other bibliographies, as that on engraving also posted at BIBSITE and those on "research tools," "children's books," and "bibliophilia." I have not often included reprints of old bibliographies and studies, such as those co-published by Oak Knoll Press and the British Library in 2001 (e.g., E. C. Bigmore and C. W. H. Wyman's A Bibliography of Printing). Although important to the study of bindings, I've not listed the informative catalogues of antiquarian dealers (all from Bayntun are noteworthy as are some from Maggs Bros., such as no. 1212, Bookbinding in the British Isles [1996]). Nor have I included most regional histories of printing, such as Bruce Whiteman's Lasting Impressions: A Short History of English Printing in Quebec (1994), which usually belong in a bibliography on the print trade (forthcoming). Only a few electronic sources are included. Occasionally, as in noting reviews, I have abbreviated lengthy journal titles, such as Papers of the Bibliographical Society of American (PBSA) and Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada (PBSC). In imprints, I sometimes have abbreviated "British Library" as "BL." I will continue to revise this bibliography, so I request additions and corrections from scholars. I thank Jeffrey Barton, Travis Gordon, and all involved in the Bibliographical Society of America's BIBSITE for allowing me to post this expanded list. James E.
