Dos-a-dos for 2 books and dos-a-dos-a-dos for 3 books together.
Don Etherington in his Bookbinding and The Conservation of Books gives a very
good description of a do-a-dos binding page 79. It is an old technique but I
don't know precisely which century and where exactly it was developed.
It is good for two or three books that are of the same size, generallay 2 or 3
tomes of the same title and not too thick.
