White Line

A line of quadrats. — M. So it is usually understood at present; yet it frequently happens that quadrats are not in sufficient quantity to use for white lines, even for the bottoms of the pages; reglet of a proper thickness is then substituted for quadrats, and sometimes leads, but these should never be used for this purpose — for a volume or a pamphlet may be wanted in a great hurry in the same measure, and then, an inconvenience may arise from the leads being blocked up in an unnecessary manner.
