These Letter Press Copy Books are from the papers of Charles Colcock Jones, a lawyer, collector, Confederate soldier and historian from Savannah, GA. These volumes were full of many shattered brittle pages and a conservation treatment was necessary to salvage them. These 900 + page volumes were only a part of a series of similar volumes all in very fragile condition. The volume was unusable in this condition.
Treatment: Only the most damaged pages were treated. The worst pages were mended using heat set tissue and a hot iron.
