Synopsis:
Jane Greenfield, advisor in rare book conservation at Yale University Library, is a leading authority on preservation and repair. After attending the New York School of Applied Design, she operated her own bindery for several years, enabling her to write from an unusual level of both education and experience. Here she offers a concise yet thorough discussion of book construction, storage, handling, cleaning, and repair, as well as essential expert advice on how to properly store and handle books of value in order to protect them from fire, flood, theft, and common wear and tear. With a new introduction by bestselling author Nicholas A. Basbanes, this is an indispensable volume for bibliophiles of every description.

Review:
Here is a concise, eminently readable handbook on how to care for any book of value. For collectors, librarians, and curators it represents an elegant summation of their responsibilities and techniques. Included in The Care of Fine Books is a brief history of book-construction methods and a discussion of the nature of fine books and their component materials, thorough advice on the storage and handling of books, securing a collection against fire, flood, theft, or other mishap, and elementary cleaning and repair. An Appendix lists sources of materials and supplies. The text is graced with over 200 line illustrations by the author. (7 X 9 1/4, 160 pages, illustrations, diagrams)
