Don't throw them out-repair them This practical manual shows you how to preserve cloth-bound library books. Schechter gives detailed instructions for the cleaning and mending of paper, book hinge repair, case and textblock reattachment, cloth rebacking, and retitling. He describes procedures chronologically and illustrates them with black-and-white photographs. Supply lists are provided with each procedure and a bibliography of supporting literature is also included. These simple-to-learn steps are geared primarily to nonvaluable material and can be used as easily by nonprofessionals as professionals. The book can be used as a repair manual in libraries or as a training tool.
