I’m afraid that I forgot to take “before” photos of this book. It was quite badly damaged in that the cover had come off and was in the process of falling apart. The book block itself was basically intact except for the last two signatures which had come loose and some of their pages were so badly damaged as to be unusable. I replaced these pages with photocopies, reattached the signatures, mended some tears with Japanese paper, and gave the book new cream end pages and a new cover. It is quarter bound in brown leather and coated linen.
