    About the Work

    This document was severely cockled as a result of being stored in a rolled position and being exposed to changes in humidity. The warping of the piece had caused several large tears. Our conservators cleaned the document and humidified it in order to flatten it and consolidate areas of ink that were flaking off. To prepare the document for display, the tears were repaired and the piece was placed into a package of UV-filtering, shatterproof plexiglass.
