A complete restoration process will cost $125/per hour also depending on type of book and to what extent the complete restoration entails which includes photography documentation.
Typically a book in G-VG condition can be improved to a F-VF restored with excellent results. (See photo gallery).
If a book is to be considered for restoration, it is sent via insured or registered mail with a $50 check or money order so that a precise estimate can be performed. I will respond within one week as to the price of the restoration cost via email or phone.
A restoration disclosure certificate will accompany this book back to the client. It will entail methods and locations of all restoration performed. It will be dated and signed by me and hopefully passed to the next subsequent owner.
Scans are always welcomed to give a "ballpark" figure.
I do NOT grade books after the book has been restored.
I can send 'Restored' book to either CGC or CBCS for grading and Certification.
I do provide Certificates of Evaluation (see Special Services).
There is no fast turn around on True Restoration given the nature of detailed work to be performed. I try to stay within 3-6 months.
