plate attachment

The method used to attach a plate to a leaf or section of a book. The various methods include: 1) an illustration printed on a separate sheet and pasted to a narrow guard of paper or linen which is then folded around the section and sewn with it (plate guarded and hooked); 2) a plate secured by folding the margin of the edge of the leaf on which it is printed around the section and sewing it with the section (plate hooked on own guard); 3) plates printed to form a section of two or more leaves and inserted into or folded around a section and sewn with it (plates folded in or around sections); and 4) two plates joined together by means of a strip of paper or linen, thus forming a section which is inserted into or folded around a section and sewn with it (plates guarded and joined).
