Adhesives and Consolidants, Preprints of the IIC Congress in Paris in September, is available from the IIC office for $20. It is not described as the printed version of papers presented orally there, but as "background material to the papers presented," presumably because the version presented was shorter or different. It is over 200 pages long, and includes the following papers:

Adhesive testing at the Canadian Conservation Institute, past and future, by Jane L. Down

Polymer dispersions artificially aged, by Rachel Howells et al.

The conservation of leather bookbindings, by B. N. Haines Graft copolymerization as a method of preserving papers: Problems and potentialities, by N. L. Burstall at al.
