Bunyans works

We found this magnificent volume of Bunyan’s Works in a very sorry state of repair while on a holiday in Queensland.

On returning home I undertook some research because it is unusual for a book of this style and subject to be printed in Australia. These Victorian books were more likely to have been printed in England. It turned out to be quite a rare edition.

As the video shows the restoration took some time but the end result was very pleasing.

This volume has now found a new home in the Southern Highlands NSW and is being very well looked after by its new owners.
