steamboating
Posted in book conservation by Jeff Peachey on August 23, 2010

I’d never heard this term before, but Nicholson puts it in quotes, suggesting it is some kind of workman’s slang, or at least an uncommon term. In describing cloth case binding, and how to use a plough, he writes. “If the volumes are small, a number may be cut at the same time. This mode of cutting is called ‘steamboating’”. This was originally written in 1856. Perhaps it is emblematic of the 19th century preoccupation with steam power in general, and how a machine can influence even the terminology of hand work.

mmm dei libri bagnati dal 1992 devono essere una bella sfida !


Dal Pd una mozione per i libri che Federico Caffè donò all'Università - IlPescara.it: "Dal Pd una mozione per i libri che Federico Caffè donò all'Università
Il Pd di Pescara, con i consiglieri Marchegiani e Blasioli, ha presentato una mozione in merito al recupero e restauro dei libri donati dall'economista pescarese Federico Caffè all'Università D'Annunzio
di Redazione - 27/08/2010

I consiglieri del Pd Marchegiani e Blasioli hanno inviato una mozione al Sindaco ed alla Giunta affinchè vengano recuperati e ripristinati i libri donati dall'economista pescarese Federico Caffè all'Università D'Annunzio di Pescara.

'Questa mozione nasce, da un susseguirsi di recenti incontri su questa figura troppo spesso dimenticata da Pescara.' sottolineano i consiglieri, che ricordano i due incontri, il primo tenuto il 5 luglio presso l'Arci Overlook e l'altro in programma sabato ai Gesuiti, riguardanti l'economista.

'La città di Pescara può farsi parte attiva affinchè quei libri di Caffè, arrivati all'Università di Pescara e lasciati in un armadio, e ci viene riferito inzuppati dall'acqua durante l'alluvione del 1992 vengano ripresi, sottoposti ad asciugatura e ripristinati in collaborazione con l'Università di Pescara e messi a disposizione degli studenti, della città e dei cultori della materia.' concludono i consiglieri, che auspicano anche una serie di incontri e seminari riguardanti Caffè.

Countermeasures against pest and mold damage based on IPM by the NDL, CDNLAO Newsletter 68

Countermeasures against pest and mold damage based on IPM by the NDL

By National Diet Library, Japan

With a warm and humid climate, like most Asian countries, Japan provides a favorable environment for molds and pests to grow. Since there are so many species and numbers of pests which remain active for a long time in the year, damage to materials can be serious. Many libraries have long been afflicted with damage from pests and molds. Therefore, the NDL has taken measures to contain the damage.

Leather Conservation Centre

"The Leather Conservation Centre is currently undertaking research
into acid deterioration of leather (commonly known as red rot) in
conjunction with The University of Northampton. This is a Knowledge
Transfer Project partially funded by the UK Government through the
Technology Strategy Board. The aims are to extend the current
understanding on acid-deterioration in leather and to develop a
conservation treatment for leather which has red rot.

To carry out the trials and experiments in order to develop a
product we require historical leather samples with or without
acid-deterioration. It would be much appreciated if you could send
us any discarded leather samples to help us with the project to the
address given below.

We are also looking for leather samples of unusual or exotic species
to extend our training collection. If you have any which you are
happy to donate to us please send us to the same address.

Introduction to Chinese Traditional Book Making - Victoria and Albert Museum

Che tristezza questa foto è così vecchia e io il corso l'ho fatto tre anni prima :-(

Introduction to Chinese Traditional Book Making - Victoria and Albert Museum: "Introduction to Chinese Traditional Book Making

26th - 30th March 2001, St. Aldate's Parish Centre, Oxford


Figure 1. David Helliwell discussing Chinese bindings and enclosures, Bodleian Library.


Recently I had the opportunity to participate in this one week course given by Christopher Clarkson on traditional Chinese binding structures. There were 12 participants from 7 different countries. Our work space was intimate but friendly as the joy of Chinese binding structures is that they require little space as small hand tools are used rather than sophisticated equipment."

The Use of Bleaching Techniques on Paper Conservation
Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies
September 27-October 1, 2010

Instructors: Renate Mesmer and Julie Biggs

Cost: $1275.00
Includes all course materials, lodging and most meals

AIC scholarships of $300 may be available.

This program is designed for mid-career conservators. Instructor
approval is required for admittance into this course.

Course Description: A variety of different bleaching methods can be
used to treat discolored and stained paper. There are cases where
bleaching may be the only way to achieve an acceptable degree of
legibility or visibility of an artifact, or to restore an artist's
vision of a work on paper without the distraction of disfiguring
stains and discoloration. In this workshop conservators will learn a
variety of historical and contemporary bleaching methods and their
appropriate uses: light bleaching, hydrogen peroxide, calcium
hypochlorite, sodium borohydride, and borane tert-butylamine
complex. These methods will be reviewed in the context of existing
and current conservation theory, ethics, and practices. The course
will focus on practical applications of different bleaching
techniques and other non-bleaching options for stain reduction-both
localized and overall treatments. Participants will perform,
compare, and evaluate the techniques.

or abraded surfaces; and information exchange amongst participants
on techniques and tools they already use.

neutralizing and de-acidifying chemicals (with emphasis on calcium
hydroxide, magnesium, bicarbonate, and ammonium hydroxide); issues
associated with washing iron gall inks; anticipated results of
aqueous de-acidification methods, and discussion of non-aqueous and
mass de-acidification methods. Participants will get hands-on
experience washing and de-acidifying sample materials using a
variety of methods.
