"A binder’s term (from the Frenchlace) meaning a border with a lacy pattern on the inner edge, usually gilt. Dentelle decoration was used, especially in France and in the 18th century, on the outside of the covers; since then, apart from the elegant late 19th-century pastiches of the style, it has been more often used, in a somewhat emasculated form, on the inside – usually described as inside dentelles." (John Carter)
