The Cotswold Olympics Rebound

The Cotswold Olympics Rebound

The details of Robert Dover's famous Cotswold Olimpicks are recorded in the rare 1636 book 'Annalia Dubrensia' - the Annals of Dover. In 2013 Robert Dover's Games Society was fortunate to acquire a copy & asked master bookbinder Dominic Riley to look at conserving it. This lecture tells the fascinating story of the Olympics, and then shows in detail the cleaning, mending and rebinding, in period style, of this charming little book.
