Hidden Messages In Gilded Books

This article from The Meta Picture was posted on the Law Library Director's listserv recently.

I, for one, had no idea that gilded books sometimes contain hidden messages (see pics below).

This might be a good time to check the books in my law library to see if any of the books have this type of message. If so, it might be worth placing them in our new rare books room.
