In this article the concept of trade or retail bindings with regard to the Swedish book market during the 18th and early 19th century is introduced and discussed. Binding techniques and materials as well as the cost of different kinds of Swedish trade bindings are shown. Special attention is given to the large production of almanacs, hymnbooks and ABC books destined for the peasantry. Complaints about these books were common and to insure the quality and price of these very simply but usually colourful bound books the production was regulated by the officials.
