This book although not very thick in comparison definitely is very thorough. For private collectors this book is a must have.
How/where to store books, preservation. Great write up on dealing with books on water damage and various hazards such as pests etc. Also contains information on structure of a book. Metal vs. Wooden shelves are also an excellent writeup.
Great reference, highly recommended.
BTW, Greenfield's non-toxic and non-distructive recommendation is to freeze books with bugs. It works!
