Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of three bookbinders in their workshop, (l to r) hammering pages to shape the spine, cutting page edges, and pressing a stack of bound books in a standing press. The quality of this image, though acceptable, is not perfect, as it was scanned from an early (1858), small original.
