Some notebooks have a pocket folded across the lower edge inside the front and/or back cover for holding loose papers. Historically, blankbooks or loose sheets were often used for making notes. In ancient Rome, small parchment notebooks, probably developed from wooden tablets, were extensively used in keeping accounts. In some cases, a notebook published as the work of an important historical figure is actually a collection of papers assembled after the person's death)
