Separated Materials

To Rare Book Room: One book binder's finishing tool, an implement used to apply decoration to the covers or casing of books. It has a long wooden handle that supports a wheel with an interlocking ribbon design that runs along the wheel's rim. This tool would have been used to apply a border decoration, mainly to the spine, of a book. It is now held in the rare book room to be used as a teaching tool to explain hand decoration techniques specifically related to the Hand Press period, which runs from the fifteenth to the end of the eighteenth century, and to the early decades of the nineteenth century.
