We have moved and under new ownership of Raptis Rare Books! See below for our new address.
The Harcourt Bindery is the largest bindery in the United States exclusively devoted to fine bookbinding by hand. Its clients include libraries and book dealers, collectors, and individuals who desire special bindings for themselves or for gifts and presentations. Harcourt uses only the highest quality leather and threads, and non-acidic adhesives and papers. Orders for single book and edition binding in leather, cloth, paper, slipcases and other portfolio boxes are welcome.
Located in Boston, Massachusetts, the Harcourt Bindery is also the oldest traditional hand bookbinder in the United States. In 2022, Adrienne and Matthew Raptis of Raptis Rare Books in Palm Beach, Florida acquired the bindery as a part of their ongoing commitment to keep the tradition of bookbinding and book restoration and preservation a part of our history and culture.
