“Manuscript waste binding” on Faustus Andrelinus, De influentia siderum, Paris: Denis Roche, [1497-1499].

The client requested that an incunabulum pamphlet be bound in “manuscript waste” as was common for cheaper bindings in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. For this project, a new manuscript was created by calligrapher Maryanne Grebenstein.

Conservation treatment:
The folds were mended with kozo paper using wheat starch paste.
There is a single bifolio of Griffen Mill handmade Falcon paper as flyleaves.
The single section was attached to the vellum cover using two vellum tackets.

Conserved in 2020.
