First and only edition of the landmark catalogue of Mortimer L. Schiff's collection of signed bindings, here luxuriously bound in contemporary half blue morocco, rather than the publisher's blue cloth. The first three volumes describe French bindings from the first half of the 17th century to the middle of the 19th century, starting with Florimond Badier and ending with Trautz-Bauzonnet. The fourth volumes describes several British and a few miscellaneous bindings. The bindings were described unusually detailed for those times. In very good condition, with some minor scuff-wear around the corners of the binding.
