A term applied specifically to a book having the spine and part of the sides, as well as enlarged corners, covered with leather, and the remainder of the sides covered with cloth or paper. The leather on the sides extends almost to the corners, i.e., much more than in the case of a HALF LEATHER binding. See also: QUARTER LEATHER ;THREE-QUARTER BINDING .
