This book is something of a collector’s item and is fairly valuable.  The mould was at such an advanced stage that the cover and the endpapers were taken off at once and disposed of.  There was some mould damage to the inner pages, so the mould was brushed off each page and the book stood up open to dry off completely. 

After the book had been pressed for a few days it was ready for rebinding.  The endpapers were of a type that matched the original and new boards were attached to the book.  The headbands were resewn and the leather and bookcloth chosen to be as near the original as possible. 

Although it was impossible to copy the spine tooling exactly, the patterns of the raised bands, the lines across the spine, the lettering and the large central tool design followed the original style.

RARE AND BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

The owner is an accomplished pianist and was worried that it was not possible to salvage these four volumes, as some of the music is now unavailable. 

The covers were beyond rescue, but the inner pages were usable, despite some discolouring due to mould.  The pages were brushed and the books stood up to dry thoroughly before pressing. The covers were remade in a suitable colour and the titles retooled. 

The books are now back in use.
