World's Largest Decorative Book Supplier. We offer a rich selection of antique, vintage, and contemporary designer books at unbeatable prices. Whether decorating a modern chic apartment or a baroque-inspired library, our diverse range of book styles can enhance any room's decor. This book is a gift to Duke University Libraries from the Nasher Museum of Art, and will remain in Lilly through the spring semester. With the rise of e-books and readers, one of the most uncommon and increasingly rare printed formats is the folio book, defined by one student as, “too damn large to carry.”.

The copy owned by Duke is bound in stamped, dark-brown leather. With the exception of a few red devices, it is not illuminated. The Nuremberg Chronicle was a gift from Harry L. Dalton '16, who spent his lifetime collecting art, rare books, and manuscripts. This absorbing biography, written in a brisk conversational style, was penned by the influential English poet as he contemplated enlisting in the Great War. Thomas covers the life and times of John Churchill, the First Duke of Malrborough ().

  For the leather binding book collector we want to share an important step in preserving your precious leather bound books: Hydrating the leather. Because leather is an organic material meant to deteriorate over time, it's important to take preventative measures to help leather bindings last a .   Don't use Mylar jackets to "protect" your rare leather bound book. Mylar jackets are great for those modern first editions with special paper dust jackets, but they are not ideal for a leather book. Leather needs to breathe, also the Mylar jacket can trap moisture against the leather which leads to rotten leather and mildew.
