SCOPE NOTE
  • Catchplates, the outer ends of which drop down over the edge of the board before rising to create a gutter-like groove into which the hooked clasp fastens. Dropped-lip catchplates, especially if nailed into shallow recesses on the surface of a board will keep the clasp within the thickness of the bound book, and would therefore be relatively safe to shelve vertically.
