Collection Maintenance Advice
With the constant degradation of our environment, it is becoming increasingly important to protect book and paper collections from atmospheric pollutants.
Modern paper manufacturers are now becoming more aware of the need to ensure the longevity of printed matter with the use of 'acid free' (neutral pH) papers. Complete protection from outside influences can be assured by safeguarding material in custom made and lined folding boxes. We are able to supply a full range of archival storage options, from leather backed folding boxes, which give the shelf appearance of a bound book, to slip cases, solander boxes and chemise wrappers.
Newbold & Collins can advise on, and produce, all your book and document storage requirements..
Book Edge Gilding
Arrangements can be made to produce gilt-edged volumes when required.
Books with damaged gilding can also be sucessfully repaired without damage to the binding.
We are often asked to add initials or names onto items for presentation. This can usually be done on the same day that we receive the goods.
