    I think the answer may be on this web page

    http://www.cambridgebibles.com/ME2/...7789D804124BB5DD417AEB8648F&nm=Bible+Leathers

    Morocco = Goat skin

    French Morocco leather
    Cambridge uses this designation for leather taken from a split calfskin, slightly thinner than other grades and therefore flexible and soft even when new. A French Morocco binding offers real leather at an economical price.
