Cleaning, Repairing and Caring for Books
By

Rating
This is a practical manual that describes in simple, straightforward language how to clean dull, shabby books, remove spots and marks, carry out minor repairs, and maintain in good condition a book collection or small library. It is not a treatise on binding and repairing valuable old volumes, nor on the conservation of precious books and manuscripts: those are jobs for highly qualified craftsmen. Most books, however, (and perhaps especially those acquired second-hand) need the sort of attention and care that a skilful amateur can give. This book, which presumes no previous knowledge of the essential techniques, is an invaluable guide to what should be done and how to do it.
