Scott Husby has been a bookbinder and conservator since 1973. From 1996 through 2007 he was the conservator for Rare Books and Special Collections at Princeton University. He is now an independent scholar building a census of bookbindings on 15th-century printed books in American libraries.

The website for the census is part of the online resources of the Bibliographical Society of America, and may be seen at:
