Abstract Between c.1845 and 1900 the firm of Alfred Mame in Tours produced enormous amounts of books for youngsters in paper case bindings covered with embossed coloured paper, which often had a lithograph pasted on the upper board. Extant copies of the same edition show different combinations of paper and lithographs. They prove that Mame had his books bound in batches, meant for various kinds of clients. Moreover, a few publisher’s advertisements relate to different dates of binding.
