I don't think they would know; if I asked they'd say "Do whatever you think
best".  The book belongs to my church and I took it on myself to do this.
I was asked to help out sorting a lot of our historical stuff; they asked
me because of my library background and my knowledge of binding, etc. is a
plus.  While going through some file cabinets we found the old
registers--some of which need repair or rebinding.  I just want to do
whatever is best.

Another question:  The book is a ledger from 1907, leather bound, hollow
back, false raised bands.  In the condition it was in I can't tell if it
had headbands or not but I'm guessing that it probably did.  Anyone know if
this type of book generally did?
