Reinforced new books which conform to A.L.A. standards, shall be designated as follows:

Resewed and reinforced in class `A' cover or "cover `A' pre-bound"  (Corresponding to Type I above).

"Resewed and reinforced in publisher's buckram cover" (Corresponding to "Type 11' above).

"Resewed and re-inforced in publisher's original cover" (Corresponding to "Type III" above).

Only books reinforced in accordance with "Type I" shall be designated "Class .A" or referred to as conforming to the Minimum Specifications:

For books which are to be either rebound or which are bound for the first time, Ranganathan's specifications are given below in brief:

Collation: All books received by the contractor are to be examined and collated and any found to be imperfect or seriously damaged are to be returned unbound to the Librarian.

A periodical shall not be held to have been collated properly nor to be perfect, unless all the parts of a volume are bound in correct sequence or pagination and the usual title.

Wrappers and advertisements in, periodicals and books are to be bound in, if the contractor is instructed to do so; otherwise, they are not to be bound in.

Sewing: Books printed on paper of good quality are to be sewn one sheet on (except where thinness of paper makes it necessary to sew two sheets on) with unbleached thread of suitable thickness over unbleached linen tapes. Books printed in soft, spongy or brittle paper are to be lined at inner and outer folds with strips of thin but tough paper before they are sewn. All sections broken at the back are to be lined with tough paper on linen strips, and where necessary neatly overcast on modem methods of cross stitching before being sewn to the tapes. The first and last sections of all books are to be enclosed at back in linen strips. All separate leaves, plates, maps, plants, etc. Are to be mounted on guards of linen, or tough thin paper and to be sewn in. Pasting on is not to be permitted. Two of the tapes are to be placed within one inch of the head and tail of each book. Straight-line machine stitching will not be accepted.
