Collectors' Terms

A selection from BTC's Illustrated Glossary - part of our new, online reference guide.

Bleed-through

Meaning that a substance has caused a stain that shows through the paper, such as tape that has been used to repair the inside of a jacket, but which has darkened and now shows on the outside of the jacket. What does this tell us? That booksellers and collectors should have their tape dispensers confiscated. This copy of Irving Shulman's The Amboy Dukes (offered in our List 24) shows the aforementioned bleed-through in the upper left corner of the front panel, but was otherwise such a nice example of the book that it sold very quickly to a very intelligent buyer.
