Thanks for posting that MPS. I was discussing with a forum member recently just such leather finishes and wondering what processes are used to get them, and why we don't see them on leather items (eg, shoes) today.
AlanC: God only knows what the leather looked like originally, but the leather looks superb now. B-S: Maybe I should turn up to the Swann club with the book and tell Olga that I've brought her "something special to polish"? A sure-fire way to be banned. Newtrane: Berne. LabelKing: Do you mean quarto?
