    Default Bible restoration

    This may be a bit off topic but I have a very old family bible that is in dire need of a restoration exercise. Can anybody refer me to someone in the Gauteng area? Thanks

    Basil, if you come right, please let me know who you are talking to. I also have an old family bible that needs quite a bit of love.

    Somewhat O/T, but I found an old Bible at a charity sale here at the local Hyper. Unfortunately, it had been 'restored' with a new cover and binding, so I can not ascertain the date it was printed. But I was able to read two of the dates from the three inscriptions in it, and the oldest date written there is 1895. The second date is either 1914 0r 1917.

    Cost me a whole R10.00!

    Most universities have advanced state of the art facilities for book "work".

    Not sure if the public have access, but a registered student does.

    Anybody in the Knysna area willing to look in the mall in the main street ? A company doing this has been there for a 100 years! , or so. Up the wonky stairs and on the right.
    There is no task too simple for some people to complicate !
