About the Work
This hand-colored map of the United States had become torn in numerous places. After cleaning the layer of dirt on the surface of the map, our conservators repaired tears with Japanese tissue and filled paper losses with liquid paper pulp. Ink losses resulting from paper damage were inpainted to improve the appearance of the map.
