recycled binding

Recylced or reused bindings are those that have been used for more than one book at different times.
A book that is obsolete is deprived from its binding, that is later recycled to bind a diferent book.

Lecture: ‘Conservation of recycled bindings and fragmentology’ (Parts 1 & 2), SICP Chile

Book conservation involves a tough decision making regarding usability and long term preservation handling. Sometimes we are dealing with fragmentology, or disjecta membra (fragments of written supports are re-used as part of a binding, with a diverse purpose from the first use) whereas in other cases the purpose is the same, and the whole binding is being recycled to bind a different book. Incunabula and manuscripts with laced-case and limp vellum bindings are studied.
