As you can see this Bible had not been well taken care of. I had to deal with more dog ears than I remember ever having to deal with before. It turned out to be a "perfect" bound Bible, meaning it was not a sewn book but just single sheets of paper with glue applied to the spine. I was able to get all the pieces back together and pretty well straightened out. I used black goatskin with new black Bible endpapers and a red ribbon. This Bible was done in February of 2010.
