OUR CATALOGUES

We regularly issue catalogues of our fine bindings and rare books. Below is a list of our recent catalogues, which are downloadable as PDF files. EBC Catalogue 14, featuring over a thousand "Particular Bindings," was bought in its entirety by the British Library. EBC Catalogue 15 was reviewed in The Book Collector, Spring 2008, with the recommendation: "For elegance of content and form George Bayntun catalogues take a lot of beating".
