The 1837 map book having seen better days.

The new interior

The fully restored book

1837 Ordnance Map Book

The map book was probably the largest book that I have undertaken so far, it measured approximately  26″ x 17″ .  The brief was to restore it  so that it could be used once again , instead of being left on the shelf. A burgundy bookcloth and black goatskin leather were chosen for the covers,  a marble paper pattern was used inside.
