This is An Universal Etymological English Dictionary, compiled by Nathan Bailey, printed for J.J.&P. Knapton,etc. (1733). It was missing the front board, so the client wanted a brand new facsimile binding. It's impossible to exactly recreate the original embossing design as we don't have the exact ornaments. (Technically, it's NOT impossible if you scan the ornament, clean the graphic on the computer, and make a metal plate. This will cost a fortune, though.) There used to be a pair of red and white sewn headbands, which I can tell based on the tagging thread inside the book, so I've sewn headbands with burgundy and rusty green threads. I chose the colors because they're the ones red & white threads will become after 300 years. You don't want them to shout "NEW!!"at you on an antique looking book like this, yeah? There have been some inquiries about how I dye the leather, but I'll get to it when I get a chance. Anyway, I've got another book to restore for this client, so I'm gonna work on it now.
