RESTORATION OF AN OLD MAP OF LONDON

This extremely rare and valuable 17th century map of London printed for and dedicated to Sir Robert Vyner, Lord Mayor of London (1674), suffered cuts and scratches from broken glass when the frame was damaged during shipping.

After carefully removing the map from the frame and detaching if from the mounting board, the map was cleaned from bits of of broken glass, washed and deacidfied to prevent further damage and deterioration. The tears were carefully mended and filled in with paper pulp of matching color. Watercolor was used to replicate the lost part of the print.
