Re: [BKARTS] book conservator in Connecticut

If it's a first edition Ulysses, you don't want to tackle it yourself.  You should find the best conservator you can, and not limit the geographic area to Conn.  Find someone who has had ample experience with the Ulysses in wrappers (if that's what you're refering to when you say soft cover.)
