Noun

  1. "Plain calfskin or sheepskin bindings issued by publishers in England from the 15th to the 18th centuries. They were rarely lettered."[1]

"During the years before edition binding and publisher’s cloth – the whole period, that is, between Johann Gutenberg, 1450, and William Pickering, 1823 – books were normally issued to the public, across the counter, in alternative dress and at alternative prices; unbound, in folded quires (latterly stitched and with the intentionally temporary protection of wrappers or paper-covered boards) for binding to the purchaser’s taste, at his order and expense, as on the Continent to this day, or at a higher price in some usually simple binding put on by or for the bookseller."Template:ABC

Not to be confused with publisher's binding which refers to books from the 19th century and onwards.
