|All the decorative techniques that may be applied to the external surfaces of a book (covers and bookblock edges) and the insides of the boards or cover, as well decorated papers, furniture and fastenings and enclosures.|
|“||The edges of every book must be in keeping with the binding. A half roan book should not have an expensive edge, neither a whole bound morocco book a sprinkled edge. Still, no rule has been laid down in this particular, and taste should regulate this as it must in other branches. The taste of the public is so changeable that it is impossible to lay down any rule, and I leave my reader to his own discretion.||”|
