pamphlet binder

A cover of pasteboard, with a gummed and stitched binding strip, used to hold one or more pamphlets. The quality of the board generally used for this type of binder, which is used in many libraries as a permanent binding, is such that it sooner or later (and usually sooner) becomes highly acidified, transferring its acidity to the first and last leaves of the publication, thus acidifying them, also.
