About this item

During more than a decade of work in the conservation of prints and drawings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Margaret Holben Ellis, a specialist in the field, was aware that reliable information on many conservation problems was hard to find. It required frequent searches through the literature in pamphlets and journals; and books on paper conservation offered only semirelated data, often inappropriate. Margaret Ellis's work notes—tested, proven and carefully recorded—became a sound personal research source that comprised the first edition of this classic work.

This new edition updates the original published more than 25 years ago. More than half the text has been updated to reflect changes in best practice and new materials. Ms. Ellis's clear, straightforward prose includes step-by-step instructions for many procedures. Strikingly appropriate black-and-white photos and diagrams illustrate the text, and three appendices carry additional specialized information.
