Cosway bindings (<bindings by style or decoration>, bindings (gathered matter components), ... Components (hierarchy name))

 

Note: A style of binding introduced in the early 20th century featuring a miniature painting inset in gold-tooled leather on the front cover. Historically the term refers to bindings commisioned by J.H. Stonehouse, manager of Henry Sotheran, a London bookseller, usually using the binding firm of Rivière and Son. The style is named after Richard Cosway (1742-1821), an English miniature painter who had nothing to do with the bindings themselves.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Boekbanden in een stijl uit de vroege 20ste eeuw, met op het omslag een miniatuurschildering ingelegd in met goud versierd leer. Historisch gezien verwijst de term naar banden die werden gemaakt in opdracht van J.H. Stonehouse, directeur van de Londense boekwinkel Henry Sotheran, gewoonlijk door de boekbinderij Rivière and Son. De stijl is genoemd naar Richard Cosway (ca.1742-1821), een Engelse miniatuurschilder die niets te maken had met de banden zelf.
