Conservation Treatment – Stationary Binding

This ledger exhibited common damage for many 19th century ledgers – stationary bindings.  Degraded and worn leather, broken text block sewing, detached cover.  The treatment included resewing sections, repairing/reinforcing sewing supports, building a new paper “spring” for the spine, and integrating toned leather and Japanese paper to repair the cover.
