I can't recommend a specific book, excep, possibly, ABC of Bookbinding. I suspect it's the same book pared down to that specialized topic.
Also, I have The Booklover's Repair Manual -- Most of it is storage for tools and materials for destroying a book you are actually trying to fix (tic), but it also contains a book on how to do the repairs, and it alone is more than worth the cost. ~EVERYTHING~ is labeled. EVERYTHING.

Do you have an English language version of that book?????
If you do, I'll be your best friend for a week.
If you don't, you'll be stuck with me for LIFE!!!!
Anyway, Gaskell will put you on track for the background information, which is lacking in my manual. For the collation formula etcetera, you could try Bowers, but as I said it's very dry (I know of only 2 or 3 people who've read it entirely). Other useful manuals are :
- Ronald McKerrow, An Introduction to Bibliography for Literary Students (which is the predecessor of Gaskell's 'new introduction').
- M.J. Pearce, A Workbook of Analytical and Descriptive Bibliography.
There's also a really funny general overview by Neil Harris, online at: http://ihl.enssib.fr/siteihl.php?page=55 (don't worry, it's in English).
Good luck to you both!
Thanks in advance.
