Repair and restoration of antiquarian books is a complex matter, requiring a combination of technical knowledge and a sound historical perspective. The guiding principles for restoration work are the retention of as much of the original material as possible and the use of 'archivally sound' materials - i.e. those which are acid free and have an alkaline reserve.
All materials and techniques employed are historically correct
and Trevor's extensive collection of finishing tools and contemporary paper
patterns ensure that the finished book has the correct 'feel' to it.
