Description
 
Barbara Buckner Higginbotham (au). Traces the development of such techniques as care & handling of library materials; pest control; repair & binding; emergency planning; & temperature control, lighting, & other environmental safeguards. While the primary focus is books, the author also looks at pamphlets, periodicals, & maps, as well as the influence of rare book & manuscript handling on preservation techniques. Much of contemporary preservation thought & practice has its underpinnings in the discoveries made during 1876-1910. Offers insight into the current problems for librarians & others concerned with the preservation of our past in the printed word.
