mounted and tipped

A plate that is smaller than the leaf to which it is to be attached, and which is positioned above the caption and secured by tipping along the top or side edge, or at the corners. The entire plate is not usually pasted down because of the greater danger of cockling, particularly if the grain directions of the two papers are in opposition. (276 )
