Names of many royal binders, from early times, are preserved in various records, but there is considerable uncertainty about the work of most of them; and, although many lists exist of books bound for certain kings by certain workmen, very few of them have been identified. From the constant appearance of personal badges of different kinds, it may be considered likely that, considerable personal interest has been taken in the covering of their books. The prevalence of red and blue, the livery colours of the Hanoverian line, is common among the Georgian Royal bindings. New York public library holds a 1717 Holy Bible bound in black goatskin with the exact same stamp 13 in gold on the covers, 108mm x 100mm. There are only four other known examples of the stamp 13 held in public libraries, all at the British Library. Bookseller Inventory # 4292
