by Edwin Wolf 2nd (au).
This is a record of ornamental embossed leather bindings manufactured from 1825 to 1855, and used on books published in the United States and Canada. On these bindings the design was produced by means of an engraved die or plaque and stands out in relief. There are 226 different plaques illustrated. These are on the covers if 495 titles, comprising 1,121 holdings in 35 collections, nine of which are privately owned. I surmise these represent approximately ninety percent of all different embossed designs used on American-bound books between 1825 and 1855. (Philadelphia: The Library Company of Philadelphia, 1990.)
