“This is an important, indeed revolutionary, contribution …”.

“[…] this is a book of pioneering importance.”

David Pearson, Antiquarian Book Monthly XXI:2, 1994, pp. 28-29.

”Darin besteht die bahnbrechende Bedeutung seines Buches …”. ”Bereits an dieser Stelle wird dem Leser des Buches von Fogelmark der Atem verschlagen.”

“Dr Fogelmark has done something that is rare in humanities research; he has taken a long-accepted principle … and overturned it — convincingly so.” // “Like so much of the earlier work … overtaken by S. Fogelmark’s revolutionary Flemish and Related Panel-Stamped Bindings (1990).”

Mirjam M. Foot, The Library, 7:1, 2000, p. 204. The Book Collector, 51:4, 2002, pp. 515-16.

“[…] the book … overturns the results of virtually all earlier studies in the field at a stroke. It offers fundamentally new insights … with far-reaching consequences. Fogel­mark’s book will undoubtedly remain a ’classic’…”.

Jos M. M. Hermans, Quaerendo 24: I, 1994, pp. 49-52.

“In sum, one may say simply that Fogelmark’s study is revolutionary. This is the first conceptual advance … since the general methodology … was codified a hun­dred years ago. […] Fogelmark’s Flemish and Related Panel-Stamped Bindings will soon be seen to have earned a place as one of the rare classics …”.

Dr. Paul Needham, Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America 87:4, 1993 (1994), pp. 511-515.
