The article discusses research on book bindings and compares two databases that have been created as reservoirs of information on that research. The purpose of studying book binding is sketched as an aesthetic avocation and a key to a work's origin and provenance. The author evaluates "Einbanddatenbank," the major German database on the subject, and compares it to smaller German and European electronic book binding information repositories.
