Deckle edge — Ex libris

Edition: A technical term for all copies of a book printed with a single setting of type. This is distinct from an impression (all copies printed at one time) and an issue (the number of copies put on sale at any given time). Editions are tied to type and whether the type has been distributed back into its cases or whether it is sitting in the print shop, ready for use. Once stereotyping was invented in the 18th century, the term began to cede much of its importance to impression.
