The Childs Guide 1846

This book I was really interested in working on because it was printed in Springfield Mass, which is near my home town.

This is a before and after of the covers.

After taking the book apart I cleaned the pages, with warm distilled water.

After the pages where dry, I used japanese pages to mend and repair the pages.

Once the text block was sown together I added the covers. I was able to lift the original covers off the old boards. This time I inlayed the old covers into the new cover.
