About the Author

Margaret Holben Ellis is Eugene Thaw Professor of Paper Conservation at the Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University; she also serves as director of the Thaw Conservation Center, Morgan Library & Museum, New York.


"The entire volume is meticulously and beautifully compiled. The readings--some humorous, many serious, all of high academic caliber--reveal Holben Eilis's comfort with the enormous depth of available material, a remarkable dedication to the care of works of art on paper, and a deep admiration for her colleagues, both historic and contemporary. This book caters specifically to conservators of works of art on paper, though students, conservators of historic documents, book conservators, art historians and collectors are all sure to find material that is enlightening and thought-provoking."--Art in Print "The book ably sets out and succeeds in establishing the antecedents of modern conservation practice and sets the milestones for on-going study."--Icon News "This anthology will influence generations of conservation and art history students to come. Proposing well-known literary pieces next to obscure ones will amuse and inform those of us engaged in the conser-vation of works of art on paper and will assist us in our decision-making, conservation approaches and dilemmas. Finally, the book will appeal to anyone with an interest in works of art on paper and their preservation, making it a highly fulfilling read."--Journal of the Institute of Conservation
