Issues in the Conservation of Photographs is the first publication to chronicle the emergence and systematic development of photograph conservation as a profession. In seventy-two essential texts from the nineteenth century to the present day, this anthology collects key writings that have influenced both the philosophical and the practical aspects of conserving photographic materials. The materials were carefully selected by the editors along with an advisory board of international experts and include some--particularly the lectures, memos, and letters--that have never been published.
Many of the topics--safe environmental parameters, silver image permanence, and proper treatment methods--have been debated since the introduction of photography. By promoting an understanding of these issues, this volume seeks to advance the education of rising conservation professionals, inspire new scholarship, and contribute to the field's ongoing evolution.
