Could someone please clarify these terms for me?
Barbara said she would be "recasing in the original bindings." I thought
recasing meant taking the text block out and making new boards and spines
to put it in--in other words a new case. But if you do that it's not in
the original binding, is it?
Another question--are the insides of those hymnals in good enough shape
to justify the work?
