In response to Sharon Connell's request about historical references
to paper deterioration, William Blades' book "The Enemies of Books"
(London: Trubner & Co, Ludgate Hill), 3rd ed. 1881, makes reference
to how the techniques formerly used by bookbinders to treat  paper.
There's a short article about it in the CCI Newsletter, No.21, March
1998, p.6.  The article can be found at:
