The frustrations and disappointments, not even to mention the unspeakable loneliness, are too unbearable for anyone who doesn't have a deep sense of being unable to avoid writing.

If you must clean your Grolier Bible, we should advise ordinary soap and water.  Put a teaspoonful of soda in a pint of warm water and use a soapy sponge.  I think you will find this will remove the dirt and you can then polish it with a little lanolin.
