Subject: Copy cradle for fragile books

Copy cradle for fragile books

From: Curt Lang <clang>
Date: Tuesday, April 11, 1995
A new copy cradle has been designed specifically for conservators and
librarians who work with rare books.  The cradle holds a book in
position under a copy camera and minimizes stress to the binding and
pages by holding the book open at a small angle and flattening only the
pages on the side being photographed.  The cradle also speeds up the
copying process by making the repetitive handling tasks associated with
copying a book easier for the copyist.  For details please contact:
