Re: Panel binding, terminology, etc.

The structure in question is known in these parts as a lapped component
binding, and is widely acknowledged to be a German invention in frequent use
throughout the 19th century for a variety of large and small format
materials. It's my favorite instead of the usual case binding, when possible.
