Small Bible Rebound

This little Bible has just gotten worn out. The spine is an embrittled hide glue mess. After this picture was taken, I took the binding apart,  made page repairs, sweated off the old glued spine and then locked it in the backing press where I rebuilt the spine with linen hinges and stout paper. Nuther day or two and this Bible will be ready for the next 100 years.
