OBSERVATIONS ON DEVELOPMENTS IN THE TREATMENT OF WORKS ON PAPER
T. K. McCLINTOCK
ABSTRACT—An informal survey of paper conservators yielded developments in treatment of interest for summary and presentation to other conservation specialties. These developments include: the improved quality and relevance of scientific research; an appreciation of systematic gradations of treatment; repairs with paper pulp; concerns about local treatment procedures; the traditions of the Japanese mounter; limiting treatments; and large-scale and group treatments.
