Title: [Alchemical recipes and instructions for making the philosopher's stone] [manuscript] : Preservation Lab Treatment Report
Author: Sorcher, Veronica; Ebert, Jessica; Schieszer, Ashleigh
Description: This is a handwritten manuscript sewn through the fold. Overtime, the spine had become distorted. The brittle manuscript is vulnerable to damage because it is unprotected without a binding. Preventative conservation was conducted to protect the iron gall ink from relative humidity as well as provide support during handling. A custom polyester jacket was constructed and wrapped around the sewn manuscript prior to digitization. It was also housed in a custom enclosure. Photographic documentation was conducted in transmitted and normal illumination, as well as ultraviolet radiation, to document iron gall ink losses, tideline staining and a watermark in the shape of a bird.
