These display cases feature more of the Nineteenth Century Publishers' Bindings as found in display cases 05 and 06, these with a fly fishing bent. As noted, books are not just about texts. There are also about art and design. Studying them in their "original" packaging can help us better understand how people communicated, whether verbally or visually, in times gone by ... or how publishers "hooked" their readers!
