Have you looked at a copy of C.V. Hoarie's book, Materials For
Conservation? The book is essentially an encyclopedia of organic
consolidants, adhesives and coatings. It delves into their history,
uses and properties. The English company Butterworth published it,
originally in 1987, and then reprinted it in 1994.
