Don't adjust your screen -- you aren't seeing double. This stamped #publishersbinding was accidentally struck twice by the binder! See the twin suns and the double ridge of the mountain at right? Cool, huh? But that's a big "oops" to a bookbinder. Published in Philadelphia in 1861, the flawed binding appears on "China and Japan, Being a Narrative of the Cruise of the U.S. Powhatan." The overall effect is a soft, out-of-focus image and makes us wonder who was working quality control in the bindery!!! #publishersbindingThursday #bookbinding #mistakeshappen #stampedbinding
