On Dec.4 I asked a question about head and tail spine repair on leather bound books. You replied and I posted a picture of my repairs and added a question about hinge repair. However it’s been so long between my first and the second question, I think the follow-up question has been lost so I will ask again. I should have started a new thread instead of adding on to the first. The text blocks are completely separated from the cases and in one volume the end sheet paste downs are almost gone. Is there a hinge repair that I can do that doesn’t involve a complete re-back? The books are old but I don’t consider them real valuable as several pages are very dirty, I suspect from greasy children’s fingers. I could do a re-back but less is more, right? Thanks, Nancy
p.s. I’ve included a picture showing the completed spine ends and the text block.
