Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Historische boekbanden waarvan de structuur oorspronkelijk afkomstig is uit koptische kloosters in Egypte, die voor zover bekend zijn gemaakt van de 4de tot de 11de eeuw n. Chr. Ze kenmerken zich door borden van hout of geperste papyrus, leren omslagen, katernen die zijn ingenaaid door het folio heen, gewoonlijk met ketting- of ketelsteken zonder bindingen, en gegroefde ruggen met flenzen en kapitalen. Zij vormen de oudste bekende soort leren boekbanden en de uiteindelijke oorsprong van alle versierde leren banden.
