How to Care for Books, 1891

 The printers’ handbook of trade recipes…, London: The Chiswick Press, 1891.(pp. 270-271)

Since it is preservation week, I thought I would do my part by passing along some preservation information from 1891.  It might be difficult for me to give up the delightful habit of toasting a book over the fire, and sitting on it, but I will try. At least for this week.
