quarter-bound cut flush

A type of stationery binding that is wire stabbed and has cloth-jointed endpapers. The boards, which are placed approximately one-quarter inch from the wire stabbing are glued to the endpapers before trimming. The cloth covering is then attached to the spine overlapping the paper-lined boards. The book and its covers are then trimmed flush. This style of binding, which is now virtually obsolete, was used mainly for order books. (58 )
