Re: Protecting wool



It may be useless to make a drop spine box with a cedar lining to protect
the wool covered book.  A textile conservator told me that cedar (as in
cedar chests) is only effective for about a year.  The cedar itself looses
its bug killing/averting properties.  Cedar chests have a good reputation
because they are sealed so well that they keep pests out.  So maybe a drop
spine box would be sufficient.
