The Works of Theodore Roosevelt in 24 Leather Bound Volumes

“I am just delighted!” -Ben

Ben’s favorite set of books, the 24 volume Memorial Edition of “The Works of Theodore Roosevelt” was bound in a faded red cloth that did not match his enthusiasm for the text within.
    The new covers are quarter bound in Blue Roma Goat leather with Sage Linen cloth. The raised bands are highlighted with genuine gold stamping. The titles are stamped in the Cheltenham typeface which was extremely popular when Theodore Roosevelt was president. The newly re-bound Memorial Edition has a stately presence that commands attention in the bookcase.

Saving Beautiful 1814 Marbled End Sheets

A favorite customer brought in a beautiful book that was over 100 years old and needed a few repairs. We were able to replace the torn cloth hinge guard and save the marbled end sheets. The book is now in great working condition and is ready for many more years of use.

A Note from a Customer

open-coveropen-journal-insideDear NLBCo folks, 
Many years ago (about fifteen) I ordered a journal from your company. It was beautiful, with marbled hardboard covers trimmed in fine leather on spine and corners, hand-sewn binding, and  a custom-stamped title. I’ve never found another like it.

The journal you made for me in 2002 has held up amazingly well, through use as both a diary and an outdoor sketchbook (pen and watercolor), and travels all over North America and Europe. Attached are some photos of how it looks today.
I will be calling tomorrow to order another one. I am so grateful that some things don’t change.

With best regards,
Judith
