Stran 94 - ... each sheet. The leaves thus folded and laid over each other in the order of the signatures, are beaten on a stone with a heavy hammer, to make them solid and smooth, and then they are pressed. Thus prepared, they are sewed in a sewing-press, upon packthreads or cords, which are called bands, at a proper distance from each other ; which is done by drawing a thread through the middle of each sheet, and giving a turn round each band...
