The images and text panels were then inserted into the bellows to create the pages. The text is a history of the accordion paired with a history of the accordion book.
Vanderbilt University Special Collections copy sent to the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) for conservation in 2016. Treatments performed included: "the volume was collated and disbound. Residual paper and adhesive from the flyleaves and previous paper repairs were removed using local applications of moisture. Tears were mended and folds guarded where necessary with japanese kozo paper and gelatin. Endsheets of burnished handmade paper with linen hinges were added, and a loose guard of handmade paper was folded around the spine of each gathering. The volume was sewn on linen cords with linen thread using a herringbone stitch. Back-bead endbands were sewn with linen thread. The volume was bound in full calf leather using a laced-in structure. A four-flap wrapper was constructed for the previous binding and flyleaves using Bristol. The volume and previous binding were housed in a custom drop-spine box. Written and photographic treatment documentation was provided"--NEDCC documentation papers, received November 2016.
