The article deals with the current terminology of conservation and historical book binding. The introduction mentions the different paradigms of a scientific examination of a book artefact and lists the fundamental differences between restoration and conservation approaches. The issue of accurate designation is discussed with regard to the technology of book binding, divided in more detail into characteristic structural, protective and decorative elements of the binding and book block, including the typology of the bindings, the sewing structure and the writing material. The etymological development of scientific terminology is treated in connection with a multidisciplinary overlap, theorists and authorities of the field, traditionalism and social usage, the scientific paradigm and normative interpretations, borrowings and literal translations from foreign languages. The study also indicates the semantic vagueness and multiplicity of expressions. In conclusion, the question is raised as to whether it is currently acceptable at all to change the raditional and long-established terminology of historical book binding.
