Note (en)
Rectangular enclosures that are open on one edge for the insertion of a book. The open edge may either be at the top (top-loading slip cases) or on one side (side-loading slip cases). The early examples often have flexible leather sides (collapsible side-loading slip-cases), but entirely rigid, leather-covered top loading examples (rigid top-loading slip-cases) had been used for fancy pocket books and almanacs from at least the mid-eighteenth century and, covered in printed and decorated paper, were widely used for such books in the early nineteenth century.
Note (nb)
Rektangulær, separat mer eller mindre stiv beskyttelse som er åpen i en kant til å stikke boken inn i.
