Book Repair: A How-to-do-it Manual
Librarians concerned with preserving their collections must deal not only with the deterioration of older books, but also with poorly made and costly new ones. Lavender's highly acclaimed guide has been completely revised and expanded to offer up-to-date help for libraries of all sizes. Covering both basic book repair techniques and sound conservation practices, this completely revised step-by-step manual offers illustrated sections on cleaning, mending, hinge and spine repair, strengthening paperbacks, and more. Completely new chapters cover: wet and water-damaged books; mold and mildew; repair of book linings and pamphlet bindings; using acid-free materials to repair damaged books; lining paper objects; affordable repair tools and supplies and much more. A full discussion of when and how to make repairs, and alternative conservation practices that enable each librarian to develop procedures appropriate to his or her library are also provided. Here is the practical guidance you need to successfully perform archivally-sound repairs - even on a limited budget.
