bindings conservation

By “binding” we mean binding a book with its own original binding, after pulling it out and treating its damages.

Lecture: ‘Conservation of recycled bindings and fragmentology’ (Parts 1 & 2), SICP Chile

Book conservation involves a tough decision making regarding usability and long term preservation handling. Sometimes we are dealing with fragmentology, or disjecta membra (fragments of written supports are re-used as part of a binding, with a diverse purpose from the first use) whereas in other cases the purpose is the same, and the whole binding is being recycled to bind a different book. Incunabula and manuscripts with laced-case and limp vellum bindings are studied.
