Preserving early Irish Cabinet minute books

Some of my favourite online reads are the occasional postings by the National Archives of Ireland on the conservation issues that it regularly faces in various collections. The latest concerns the preservation of three Cabinet minute books from the early Dail of 1922-23, with original pages of minutes crudely pasted into volumes of very poor quality acidic brown paper. Have a read of the short two page guide on how the damage was repaired at www.nationalarchives.ie/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/CabinetMinuteConservation.pdf.
