Moscow: Rudentsovy, 2020. Sewn pb. This catalogue of sixty-six selected bindings from the Moscow University Library demonstrates the work of a private binding workshop formed by the eminent military officer (e.g., head of allied artillery in war against Napoleon) and diplomat (represented Alexander I's government in Persia). A bibliophile from an early age, Ermolov had books in Latin, French, German, English, and Russian most dating to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and the bindings he and his craftsmen created show that he developed the applied art to a high level, basing his style on French work but branching out into original styles of his own. Catalogue entries note techniques used for covers, spines, and endpapers, and give full bibliographic information in the language of the original. 233 p., approx. 100 color illus., Rus. with bibliographic information in the language of the books and summary in French.
