The Apostolic Fathers
The two volume set above is from my own library. They were given to me by a bookstore owner 25 years ago in the condition you see here.
In the summer of 2010 I produced a really nice binding for them, with marbled papers for endsheets and leather in a half binding. I used red bonded leather for the board panels. They aren't books that I use much but I wanted to do this project to finally put a binding on these books and to attempt a fine binding for the first time in more than 20 years. I'm pleased with the results.
