Kalthoeber Bindings

Books that might be in Kalthoeber bindings, but without his usual label. Stuart Bennett has indicated that Kalthoeber introduced the use of his labels around 1790. Given that he succeeded to Baumgarten’s business in 1782, this leaves a large number of books that will have to be identified by tools, style, and contemporary evidence.

 The following are noted in the February 1783 catalogue of Benjamin White (ESTC T9573). (This is a draft list, and is far from complete.)
