Gather Books

Gathering of books is to take one sheet off every heap, beginning at the last sheet first, viz. at the left hand end of the range. — M.

We now reverse the heaps, and place the first signature where they used to place the last; they then gathered, placing each sheet upon the other: we now gather under each sheet, which is a much quicker way. See Gathering.
