The Connecticut State Library embraced the Emery Process. In my
office, I have a box of Emery Process samples from the 1920s or
1930s with unbound samples of photostat, documents mounted in a
frame with and without silking, split paper and various treatments
for maps. The library also produced a booklet called: History,
progress and work of the Emery Record Preserving Co., Taunton,
Mass., in connection with the public records of our land


We also have the booklet you mentioned: Preservation of records.


Have your local library get in touch with our Interlibrary Loan
folks, who will check and see if we can make a copy of the booklets
