Buckram is one of several types of book cloth. These cloths come backed
with paper or filled with chemicals i.e. starch or pyroxylin so that
adhesive does not bleed through. Specifically, buckram is a slightly
textured cloth; linen or vellum finished cloths are smooth and natural
finish buckram is a coarse texture cloth.
One of several good references is Laura S. Young=92s Bookbinding and
Conservation by Hand, recently republished by Oak Knoll books in New
Castle, Delaware (email <oakknoll@xxxxxxxxxxxx> and website is
<http://www.oakknoll.com>. Another reference is the out of print
Cleaning & Preserving Bindings and Related Materials by Carolyn Horton.
