|To scan the
first two facing pages required 4 separate scans (two separate scans each
page) and then fitting together the “top half” scanned images with the
“bottom half” scanned images.
the volume’s fragile nature, the book was not opened flat on the scanner.
Rather the scanner was turned over and placed flat, glass side down, on the
book which was held only half open. Scanning downward with a turned-over
scanner is not a recommend use for a scanner but I preferred risking the
scanner (which can be replaced) than the book (which can’t be replaced).
first two pages were scanned. Thereafter all other images of entries were
taken using a digital camera in one hand and holding the book only half open
with the other.
