wrappers, wrappered ☜☞ Fundas, protegidas por fundas


Wrappers are paper covers meant to afford protection for a suelta, usually of a temporary nature.  However, the fact that library records often mention "wrappers," and even describe them briefly, attests to their durability. Once a library receives a suelta with wrappers, it becomes part of the physical evidence of the history of object and is rarely removed (except in cases of preservation intervention).

Wrappers come in an astonishing variety: blank scrap sheets, fancy marbled paper, recycled pages from a ledger or other commercial book, wallpaper, elegant card stock, or even thin tissue paper.  Some bookdealers add marbled paper covers to make the sueltas more attractive for buyers; some collectors seem to add them also. Unfortunately, marbled paper is rarely acid-free and the acidity transfers from the cover to the outer printed pages, damaging them over time.
