According to the Salem Athenaeum, marbled endpapers were the first decorated ones of their kind, although by the 1930s most of the artisans were already gone and it was all done by machine. In this way the Bergen Public Library collection also represents the last stage of decorated endpapers, just before they became unnecessary thanks to the industrialization of the book-making process and the arrival of trade paperbacks. But anyone with a library of old books or who’s flipped through some vintage tomes has likely caught a view of these bookbinding details. (via The Lost Beauty of Book Endpapers)
