BOOKLOVER'S REPAIR KIT

John Isles of Hanover, Michigan writes: "Further on the
topic of book repair, I see that remaindered copies of
"The Booklover's Repair Kit" by Estelle Ellis et al. are
now being sold by HamiltonBook.com for only $29.95.  This
comprises a book and a box of supplies that I've found
very useful for small repairs, while I've used its soft
red archival tape to hold together some of my worst cases
until I get around to having them rebound.  Here's the
full description:

THE BOOKLOVER'S REPAIR KIT: First Aid for Home Libraries.
By Estelle Ellis et al.  Unique kit provides step-by-step
instructions and everything you need to clean, patch,
preserve, repair, and restore the books you love, in your
own home and with no previous experience. Includes guide
book, document-cleaning pad, transparent mending tape, red
cotton library tape, binder's board, archival mat board,
brushes, clamps, etc. 65 photos. 117 pages. Published by
Knopf. Hardbound . Remainder . ISBN 0375411194 . Item
#3256774 Save $95.05.  Published at $125.00.  Your Price
$29.95   hamiltonbook.com

Of course I have no stake in the kit or in Hamilton Books,
but I have to say that at this price it's worth buying a
couple just to stock up on supplies."

[We mentioned this kit in the September 11, 2005 E-Sylum.
Here's what we said:  v08n39a23.html.
I've also seen the kit for sale in discount mall bookstores.
Lucky me, I got one for Christmas thanks to a well-placed
hint.  -Editor]
