Keeping King James Together

Posted in Artisans & Merchants by Sheila Newbery on November 14, 2009

From the Artisan & Merchant series: Klaus-Ullrich Rötzscher, owner of Pettingell Book Bindery, rebinding a seventeenth-century King James bible for the Bancroft Library (University of California, Berkeley). The bindery, founded by Louis Pettingell, has been in continuous operation in Berkeley since 1926.
