 +The act of putting the different [[g:​gathering|gatherings]] of a work together, in the warehouse, so as to make complete [[b:​books|books]]. This is done by laying the gatherings in order upon [[g:​gathering-table|a table]], and, commencing with the first, taking them up in order; by adopting this method they are gathered ​
 +under hand, as it may be termed, the succession being placed at the bottom as the person proceeds. The reverse of this method, is, however, to be preferred; to commence at the end of the work, and as the gathering is held in the hand, and rests on the arm, to lay the others upon it as they are [[t:​take-up|taken up]], so that in this way the commencement of the book will be the last to be gathered.
