Hierarchical clustering techniques appropriate in this case?

Dear Colleagues:

I have a big dataset (over 150 cases) of old books on topic A. For each
book, some 20 characteristics (mostly pertaining to their contents) have
been collected. I would like to generate a little "phylogeny" of these
books. My first thought was to use standard phylogenetic techniques yet in
discussing the matters with colleagues in statistics they suggested to use
hierarchical clustering techniques.

If you have any recommendations on the matter, could you send it directly
to me?
