Book Withdrawn

January 23, 2009

withdrawnEvery time I go to Temple’s library I check the withdrawn cart. Usually there is little to nothing of interest, but you don’t know unless you look, right?

Well, today on the cart my wondering eyes spied J. D. Wiseman’s Chronicles of Chaldean Kings. As you can see, it will need a little TLC. Luckily I know a little bit about bookbinding and restoration. Aside from the cover damage the books is beautiful,  with all twenty one plates in pristine condition. I am a very happy man.
