Got this off ebay for $7.99. Should I leave it as is (falling apart) frame the whole thing or just frame the cover page. 20"x13.5" Decent size great graphics. Looking for input before I separate history.

If you are going to frame it, frame the whole thing as opposed to just the cover. Will look the same as just the cover framed and you will not lose the rest of it.

Frame the whole thing. Use a mat to cover the tattered edges.

Frame as is, or else scan the cover and frame that and keep the atlas in a Mylar bag. Please don't "break" it!

Might be tough to frame as a whole, but I think I'd try!
Best to try and preserve it intact for future generations.

I'm not sure how thick it is. Like a map? I would sandwich it in it's entirety between a piece of glass and a stiff backing material, and frame it up just like that. Leaving the edges exposed!
It's beautiful just like it is!!
