This big guy was a mess when it arrived, but with a lot of TLC we were able to save this book, and even extend its life. 

Restoration stats: Repaired split wooden board, rebuilt end-caps, new embroidered end-band, new straps and brass hasps to match the existing catches, and leather conditioning all over. We also added a facsimile general title page.
