A Small Repair

Following on from our last post Caii Julii Caesaris quae extant showed the wear of its travels. The stitching was tight and the pages were clean. The boards were in relatively good shape as were the marbled end-papers. But it was missing its spine and the cover had a few missing pieces.

It is always our goal to use as few invasive techniques to repair or conserve books and manuscripts. In this case the repair was to add new vellum for the spine and provide some labels. Caesar is ready for many more years of travel.
