    **** Moderator's comments:   This posting refers to the same
    book announced in Conservation DistList Instance: 8:1 (June 13,
    1994). This followup message (which has been heavily edited), is
    included primarily because there is a new address for obtaining
    the book.

The book  being  offered is devoted to one of the most important
aspects of library collections preservation,  namely  biological
deterioration  of  paper  and  books.  This is the most complete
study in the Russian national and foreign  literature  published by
the Library of the Russian Academy of Sciences.  It has been written
by Doctor of Biological Sciences,  Yuliya P.  Nyuksha, a
world-famous   scientist,   who  has  for  nearly  five  decades
assembled unique material working at conservation departments of
largest libraries at St.-Petersburg. ...

The book  is intended for scientific and practical workers,  for
librarians and curators, conservators and restorers, mycologists
and  microbiologists, all specialists concerned with protection
of cultural values.  It is written in two languages (Russian and
English)  and  contains  230  pages  of text with 41 figures and
references of 214 titles.
