Re: [BKARTS] Name for Blank Pages?



According to this glossary, the correct term for the blank pages at the
beginning and end of the book is the plural, "fly leaves," viz,

"A leaf or leaves at the beginning and end of a hook, being the leaf or
leaves not pasted to the boards, or covers, of the book. "
