We do not make book repairs.

You would find it cheaper to purchase a copy in good condition than in
trying to get the one you have repaired: it would cost several hundred
dollars to bring back, from the sound of it, and you would still have
something that wouldn't be as good as a copy in good condition. You should
be able to get a copy in good condition for about $30. -tb
