Beautiful restoration work, and I love the cover!  I don't suppose you have some before restoration pics?

God's love is manifest in the landscape as in a face.  - John Muir

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil

Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads. - Thoreau, Walden

I only have one and as you'll see from this pick they did a great job. The damage is a bit worse than the pic is showing also. Overall the pages were in great shape except for a couple that they remedied. The spine area is where most of the work was needed as well as cleaning and conditioning.
