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 Basbanes, this is an indispensable volume for bibliophiles of every description.
