Conservation of rennaisance astronomy book
Conservation of rennaisance astronomy book with reverse vellum binding and protruding thongs. Clavius was a reputated astronomer, contemporary to Galileo Galilei.

Lecture: ‘Conservation of reused bindings’ (Part two), Dubrovnik
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.
Lecture: ‘Conservation of re-used bindings’ (Part one) Zagreb
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 with rolled sewing on parchment are studied.
Conservation of stationery vellum binding with rolled sewing
That's the typical case of the covers of a binding (or what'sleft of it) being a former parchment manuscript, a waste material that was recycled for a new purpose (a binding).
Conservation of recycled limp vellum wallet binding
Conservation of a manuscript with a palimpsest limp vellum binding with flap. The flap and other missing parts are reconstructed after conservation.
Conservation of a manuscript with one binding inside the other
Not uncommon to find waste material as part of a binding (parchment manuscripts, for instance), but quite much rare when the previous and original binding is part of the boards layers of the current recycled binding! The outer and visible binding belonged first to a former book, and the hidden binding, to the current, one... crazy!
