from non-ancient binding and publishing processes, James Robinson
didn't use the word that way in his Intro to the Facsimile edition. In his
usage, a quire is an indefinite number of leaves folded together:
"A *codex* is made up of one or more *gatherings", usually referred
to as *quires*. For although this term is derived from *quaterniones*,
which is the designation for gatherings of four sheets (which came
to predominate), it has taken on the broader meaning of gatherings
of any number of *sheets* or *bifolios*." (p.32)
