Glossary of Printing Terms:
Foxing

Refers to the condition of a book; intrinsic to paper, the patchy brownish-yellow spots that discolor plates and pages of a book.

It is most likely caused by lack of ventilation and/or chemical reactions between the paper and microorganisms.

The spots are generally found in 19th century books and can range from barely visible to ruinous.

Also known as foxed.
