Atlas Designed to Illustrate the Geography of the Heavens by Burritt - 1836

The 1836 edition was the last edition of Burritt's atlas that was published before his death in 1838. This copy has a couple of issues, the first of which are the torn pages. Every page has at least one tear, which I think I can address by applying wheat paste to the page fibers exposed along the tears and pressing between wax paper, one tear at a time. I have done this with another book that had severely torn pages and the technique works very nicely. The other issue is that the atlas has water staining and the pages are rather stiff.
