I have an old Bible that was printed about 1821. The Bible belonged to my second great grandfather, Ephriam Benn. I want to preserve the Bible, and I want to share information about the Bible with other family members.
I am looking for tips and techniques to preserve this old book. I currently store it in a photo archival storage box. I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona. In general, our climate is generally hot and very dry. The Bible is not yet falling apart, but I do not want to handle it often.
- Is there something else I should do to prolong the life of this Bible?
- If I want to take pictures of the Bible, what precautions should I take?
- What types of pictures provide the most value to other genealogists?
