Probably, the most interesting reference on this subject is:
Laroque, Claude, "Transparent papers: a technological outline and
conservation review", in Reviews in Conservation, 1 (2000): 21-31.
It is a very well-made and comprehensive review on this matter. As
such, it contains many references and brief but very valuable
comments and descriptions. While it does not intend to contain
detailed information on each treatment, it is a very good and
comprehensive guide to the subject: definitely a must for anyone
facing problems with tracing papers.
