Rebinding breakdown

I really like this breakdown of the cost for rebinding a book (and more than once, at that!) circa 1906. It’s a lot more expensive now!

From this same book, here is a very detailed cut-away picture of the joint and endpaper construction for a book. 

These images are from:  

Dana, John Cotton. 1906. Notes on bookbinding for libraries. Chicago: Library Bureau.
