During the period 1880 to 1920 the number of women bookbinders in Britain increased dramatically. This is an introduction to the role and work of women craft binders during the period, including Sarah Prideaux, Katharine Adams, Sybil Pye and the Guild of Women Binders. All significant figures are included, and the text is supported with appendices illustrating the tools used by Prideaux, Adams and Pye, and a list of women in charge of bookbinding shops in Britain before 1900. A list of women binders in America is also included. The aim of the book is to make a significant contribution to the study of the role of women in the late 19th-and early 20th-century book trade.
