SCOPE NOTE
  • The bindings found on books made to be written in, such as ledgers, account books, etc. A variety of structures were used for these books (e.g. laced-case, tacketed, springback, etc.), but they were all intended to serve the same purpose. In eighteenth-century England, the binders who made these books were known as 'vellum binders', as parchment was the predominant covering material used on these books at that time.
