Repairing 1900 book cover

0

I am trying to repair the cover of a 1900 book and preserve the paper. The spine had been replaced with duct tape, which I’ve removed as you see in the attached photo. I already asked you whether I should just attach new bookcloth on top of the leather remnants, and you said that no, the leather will continue to deteriorate so I should just remove it. Can I then apply the new bookcloth over the paper?What about the bottom of the back cover, can it be repaired?

If you apply book-cloth over the leather it will fall apart later. The leather will continue to deteriorate or even just release from the board.
The board can be repaired sort of the same as a board corner.
