Conservation Rebinding on:

Edward Wells, A New Sett of Maps Both of Ancient and Present Geography, London, 1726.

The extant binding was discarded, and the leaves and maps washed in warm de-ionized water and re-sized with methyl cellulose. The sheets were mended with kozo tissue and wheat starch paste, and mounted on guards of heavyweight kozo paper. The volume was re-sewn on seven double cords, and new boards were laced on. The atlas was rebound in a facsimile of the original, with quarter calf and marbled paper, and tooling and titling in gold leaf.

Rebound in 2011.
