This title is a booklovers' delight. Here in one witty, instructive volume is everything needed to know about storing, cleaning, fixing, shelving, mending, oiling, mailing, dusting, pasting, binding, gluing, debugging, deodorizing, and otherwise guaranteeing a long shelf life for your treasured tomes. The authors I are professional booksellers who know exactly what supplies! to use, where to get them, how to use them, and how to weed a collection. Their aim is to help all booklovers to preserve their own books without great expense, inordinate effort, or extensive training. This is a splendid gift for anyone who cherishes their books.
