The poster presentation follows the treatment of a badly mold- and vermin-damaged 17th c. English herbal of roughly 600 pages. The developed treatment protocol calls for pulp fills using a vacuum suction table in place of a leafcaster, which was not available. The poster documents the decisions and workflow involved in a treatment procedure that other conservators could adapt for their own special collections treatments.
