Bound in leather, this ledger had suffered from damp storage conditions. The text block had deteriorated and there was extensive leaf damage throughout the volume.
The volume was stripped down and the leaves surface cleaned. The leaves were repaired with matching paper and wheat starch paste. The text block was then re-sewn on linen tapes. Matching endpapers were then attached.
A new hollow was attached to the binding. The original weakened boards were replace with acid free boards. The original leather was then remounted onto the new binding.
