Minute Book Conserved for Civic Reception in
Clare County Council
|Old spine Linings|
Ennis Town Commissioners Minute Book was required for a civic function in Ennis on Friday 22nd February. Irene Franklin, Archivist, Clare County Council had the volume delivered to us in the bindery in Muckross House.
The volume required overall dry cleaning using smoke sponge, cotton wool and erasers. The first few section and the last sections were loose and in need of paper repairs. We toned Japanese tissue and commenced tear and spine repairs.
Old index tabs were removed as these had been crudely attached at a later stage. After sewing the volume was lined with Japanese tissue and Aero Linen.
We managed to complete the project and delivered it back to Clare County Archives in the tight time frame window required.
