Much more common in older books printed on handmade papers with a high rag content than in books printed on manufactured papers made from wood pulp with a higher acidic content.

Also Kalendarium Hortense

    Remaining half-titles are therefore of interest to collectors. They include: [10] Of Liberty and Servitude All but one of his eight children predeceased him, most in infancy and childhood. Among the most striking features of their diaries is the lack of consistency from entry to entry in both names and common words.
