Term english
Solander case
Definition english
Drop-front, or drop-back case used to preserve books (or as originally conceived, to preserve botanical specimens). One drawback is that occasionally, when the "drop front" is removed, the book drops forward onto the floor, with resultant damage to the book, and dismay to the collector.
