Excerpt from Life and Letters of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Vol. 2 of 2

How formidable a little cheap knowledge looks to those who are wholly ignorant of its familiar terms! I recollect that the word forwarding made almost a sensation, as Sumner spoke of it. What is for warding It includes all that part of a book binder's work which is necessary for the preservation of a volume.

All the rest is finishing, coloring the leather, gilding, and ornamentation of every kind.

I think we were all interested in Sumner's dinner table lecture, I am sure he enjoyed giving it as much as any old Professor discoursing to a class of students.
