The finished board shows that the cover material has flattened back out nicely. This photo was glare-lighted to highlight the ridge where the board has swollen along what had been the tide line of the water. In this example, this isn't objectionable; the cover material is adhered tightly to it and this discrepancy doesn't warrant a more major repair. Our real objective here was to eliminate the threat of further damage by mere handling and use, and this has been accomplished. Thus, the book is ready to return to its collection.
