“Dance & Hering drank tea – settled manner in which Books of portraits shall be bound, – Heads to be inlaid to fit.”
–Diary of Joseph Farington, Esq., R.A.
The bindings produced by Charles Hering Sr, and those of his son Charles Hering, Jr, may be distinguished by the address on the binder’s ticket or stamp. There is rarely any distinction made in library, auction, or bookseller catalogue, so all references to their bindings will be collected here on one page.
