This is the updated version now in english of the classic french book about conservation or more correctly about the preventative care of photographic materials, pulblished by Bertrand Lavedrine [spelling wrong in city library description]. Every museum should have a copy of this book. I was privilaged to meet both him and Francoise Flieder when I was a guest presenter at ARSAG [Association pour la Recherche Scientifique sur les Arts Graphiques] Paris, France, some years ago. This book is a "must read" for those who are serious about preserving our nation's history!
