Can you tell me why 18th century English bookbinders cut down the margins of 16th and 17th century books? Did they hate books, bookowners, or did the damp make it necessary.

Also would love to find first volume of the Osmont Du Cange Glossarium ad scriptores mediae et infimae Latinitatis 1733(?). Having missed the opportunity to get a good set, I rescued a broken one. Not worth rebinding without volume 1.
