  1. Dear Sir/Madam

    I have a 200 year old Bible but unfortunately though the book is in good condition the thick cover is missing. Are you able to restore it? If so, how do I get it to you as it is quite big and heavy—–also once restored I would like to give it to the museum as it will be better used there. Please let me know. Thank you anisa
