1568 Bishops' Bible: Restoration of a First Edition.

This restoration project was fun and kind of annoying because we were fixing another binders mistakes.  The book was already rebound, but with boards that were too short so the text block didn't fit.  Also, the front preliminary pages were out of order and the title page was in backwards!  Never fear, we fixed this handsome book and everyone can rest easy tonight knowing another book is preserved! 

The usual suspects are all there:  Hand embroidered end bands, wooden boards, beautiful leather cover with blind tooling, and a good looking clamshell enclosure for good measure.
