Taxidermist's Manual - restored pages after treatment

This shot shows the condition of the pages after conservation treatments, such as the infilling of loss areas with archival hand-made papers, have been carried out. The staining has been greatly reduced by washing the pages when unbound in a series of warm distilled water bathes.
