I would suggest photocopying a circulation copy, spiral or plastic comb
bound; that would be available to the patrons, and putting the
origional volume away from use as a rare book in it's current state.

=====
Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!

>From the book, Charge of the Goddess
