Mendery Moment

I was talking with a professor about some rare 
Medieval manuscripts she’s been working with. 
They were found inside the binding of books. 
Working in the Mendery, I often do spine 
replacements on books. It isn’t uncommon to 
find publishers using whatever paper was handy 
to strengthen the spine text block. This is from 
a 1934 British book, using what looks like some 
Biblical text, with Greek. Sometimes I see old 
newspaper print. We use good quality paper 
these days.
