They are also treasured by their owners for the contents, the bindings and the beauty of the printed or written page. Yet their deterioration is inevitable and the process of aging may be accelerated by neglect and chemical changes in the materials used in their manufacture. Here is a book that, using step-by-step instruction with the aid of diagrams, provides all the information needed to combat such deterioration. Of particular interest are the techniques involving the repair and restoration of antiquarian books and the full details of up-to-date chemical treatments for the preservation of archives. . This is a book that will be of enormous benefit to librarians, booksellers, collectors and all who have books in their care."
