Few things give me more satisfaction than applying leather preservative to an old, dry leather book (I use Fredelka Formula, good stuff). How did they get such depth to the leather? Can they do that today?
This is a book I picked up last year at a college library sale, and have finally connected the Fredelka Formula (finally tracked down after being misplaced) with the book. I was drawn to it because of its early publication date in Lexington, Kentucky, (1828), the home of my alma mater.
