Anthony Hobson

It is with great sadness that we record the death on Saturday morning, 13 July, of Anthony Hobson, at the age of 92. The leading bookbinding historian of his, and indeed successive generations, his work, especially on Italian bindings of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, was outstanding and will remain a monument to a long and very active life. He was completing work on a new book when he died.
