Subject: Treaty binding

Treaty binding

From: Patricia Mouraud <patricia.mouraud>
Date: Wednesday, January 30, 2002
I'm working on a ratification between Iran and The Netherlands from
1930 which giving me problems for the identification of the
materials. This is a kind of islamic binding, in fact more a cover
or portfolio (without sewing) with the ratification inside. The back
is made from brown leather; the boards are made with a kind of
textile on the boards, they are decorated on the 2 sides with a kind
of oil painting. The painting is on a layer of paper and a matte
preparation (a little like a gouache). This paint is in very bad
condition with a large missing parts, flakes. I'm trying to find
some information about the materials and the treatment to
consolidate this layer; maybe a painting conservation can help me
because the specialist in book conservation works most of the time
on older objects.
