Dr Derek Priest will present a seminar on 'Sizing'. The aim of this

"sizing" will be dealt with, how sizing is achieved, the effects
produced by sizing and how they are measured. To keep the discussion
within reasonable bounds, emphasis will be on papers of historic
importance, likely to be encountered by paper conservators.
