From the Bernard C. Middleton Collection of Books on the History and Practice of Bookbinding. Presently numbering some 2,000 volumes (and numerous ephemeral items), the collection is housed in its own reading room within the Cary Graphic Arts Collection, R.I.T. The acquisition of the Middleton Collection was made possible through a generous grant from the Frank M. Barnard Foundation and its chief trustee, the late Dudley A. Weiss, in whose honor the reading room is named. The acquisition of this work supports the ongoing development of the collection.
