A lovely catalog to the Houghton Library's 1984 exhibition "Marks in Books, Shown and Explained: an Exhibition Devoted to Those Mysterious Traces Left in Books by Printers, Binders, Booksellers, Librarians, and Collectors." Includes a short introductory essay and consists mainly of black and white photographs of select pieces from the exhibition. The catalog provides both common and uncommon traces of those hands involved with every stage of a physical book's life. Wish I could have seen this exhibition and hopefully it will be revisited at some point (and perhaps with a full-color catalog as well). ( )
