Karslake "saw that more money could be made by teaching to bind than by only binding and selling books. He maintained that women were well-suited to be bookbinders, due to their "inborn reverence for the beautiful" and their deftness of hand. He focused on both promoting the work of women already engaged in bookbinding, and training additional women to create. Tidcombe, Marianne (1996). pp. 115, 120. ISBN 9781884718236. p. 122.

Marianne Tidcombe, whose Women Bookbinders is an essential reference, says that Prideaux bindings "all have a restrained beauty about them that continues to appeal to book collectors. Anything pictorial or gimmicky would have been anathema to her, and she leaned instead towards clean, crisp floral motifs. One of the few Scandinavian binders to receive any attention in Tidcombe's "Women Bookbinders, 1880-1920," Sparre is described in that work as being "responsible for some very restrained and tasteful designs for modelled leather bindings.

Judged by their covers. The main focus of this book is the three most famous women bookbinders of the period: Sarah Prideaux, Katherine Adams and Sybil Pye. Their work is sufficient in itself to warrant a look at the conditions in which women in general learned the trade. For they occasionally show weaknesses in technique, which raises questions about how difficult it was to learn their craft. Marianne Tidcombe draws together the evidence of how women suffered from lack of training. Only boys could train as apprentices.

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.

This is a major contribution to bookbinding history.
This is by far the most comprehensive book I have seen on Women Bookbinder's and hopefully will stimulate further study
The author has written a clear but detailed, well referenced study, and there is a lot of useful information in her appendices with lists of various important Bookbinder's bindings. These usually don't have details on where the bindings are to be found today.
For those wth the skill , there are drawings of the main binders tools, that can help identify a binding

Marianne Tidcombe is the author of several major works. She is a bookbinding historian , as well as a librarian and bookbinder.

Sarah T Prideaux
Miss Prideaux was a bookbinder, and bookbinding historian.
Her early bindings were modest but her later bindings were highly regarded. She was coy about the exact details of the bindings. It appears that they were undertaken by the Frenchman Lucien Broca to designs by Miss Prideaux. See especially page 109.
( At the time this practice was common with Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery, Douglas Cockrell ,and others. )
The use of a professional binder was needed to get the clear lines and finish she required on her bindings.
She bound some 276 books
Her tools included
Floral Tools, buds, seed- pods, and leaves
Further floral tools, monograms and coronet.
Leaves, curves and circles.
Persian tools
Each has a letter(s) and a number and is illustrated.

She stopped producing bindings around 1906
She wrote on bookbing both from a historical point of view, and practically.
She also wrote on other art subjects like Aquatints.

This book is a major contribution to the bookbinding literature.
The book is well written and much of it understandable to the attentive novice. A knowledge of bookbinding would help , but if you are interested in the subject and invest the time, you should be well rewarded
the colour illustrations are first class-- my photos are poorly lit and are suboptimal. I hope however they give you an idea of the excellence of the Bookbindings.

Anyone interested in the history of bookbinding should not be without this book. Herein you find a walkthrough of the craft of handbookbinding as practiced by women around the turn of the century. The book describes some of the important binders as well as it gives the history of women bookbinders. The book is beautifully illustrated with numerous color and B/W photos of bindings and their creators. As usual the book itself is a piece of craftsmanship as often seen when the publisher is British Library/Oak Knoll; fine paper and sturdy binding.
