drop-spine box



Hello, People,

Please excuse my ignorance, but the archives don't deal with this totally. What does "drop-spine" mean in the term, "drop-spine
box"?

I take it that the purpose of a drop-spine box is  to hold a book snugly, so
that it is not injured if dropped.

And a drop-spine book is used to hold a book when it's decided that no further treatment of the book would be beneficial. Is this
so?

Thanks, and all the best.

Alan Prince
