Historical references to paper deterioration

From: Pau Maynes <maynesp>

Here is another reference on paper deterioration. It is not only
about deterioration--it contains also lots of old recipes and
techniques for conservation. A very interesting and imaginative
work. Here goes an example: Bonnardot use to make his own hot
spatula supporting a piece of burning wood with a spoon! Anyway, I
hope this French point of view of the profession will help you.

    Bonnardot, A.: Essai sur l'Art de Restaurer les Estampes et les
    Livres ou Traite sur les meilleurs procedes pour Blanchir,
    Detacher, Decolorier, Reparer et Conserver les Estampes, Livres
    et Dessins. ; Paris, 2nd ed. (1858), reprint 1979. VIII + 70pp.
