Beautiful book but severe spine roll and tape/tape stain on back cover.
First I had to remove the cover and remove the tape which was on back cover and inside back cover.  Tape staining was very stubborn but it was minimized. Tear was sealed using Japanese heat set tissue.  Each page was individually pressed and since the pages were a slight bit tan, each page was de-acidified to neutralize and buffer paper.  Spine roll removed.  Cover re-assembled using original staples and book pressed intact.

Nice, solid books found in an estate sale.  A little dirty, creased and rolled spines. Pencil overlay on the top of the cover.  Basic cleaning and a good pressing makes them whole and new looking again.
