Restoration And Protective Boxes
Several of our staff members specialize in leather and cloth repair, from reattaching covers to repair of cloth bindings, from children's books to cookbooks. We can deacidify paper a process, which neutralizes destructive acids in older paper documents and books, and can undertake simple paper repair.
For rare and fragile materials, The Harcourt Bindery makes all types of portfolios, slipcases and fall-back boxes in leather and/or cloth. These are used to hold letters and documents, first editions both early and modern ones, with dust jackets. The boxes can be made to be not only practical, but also to look just like a book. The two telescoping trays afford maximum protection with a neat and attractive appearance.
