Rebinding Kitab Al Azkar Imam Nawawi

A while ago I posted a very old manuscript on Al Azkar Imam Nawawi. It is dated 667AH however the manuscript never been bounded. Its a loose manuscript wrapped with a leather cover. See below link :

During my trip to Istanbul early this year, I brought with me this manuscript and sent to a binding company for a repair. I have to pay about USD200 but Masyallah the result was fantastic!! All loose pages were binded and leather cover is beautifully embossed.
See below photos after the repair.
