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 (Viner), Lord Mayor of London (1674), had suffered cuts and scratches from broken glass when the frame was damaged during shipping.

After removing from the frame and detaching from the mounting board the map was carefully cleaned from all the traces of broken glass and deacidfied to prevent further deterioration.

     

The tears were carefully repaired and filled in with a pH neutral compound and all signs of damage were eliminated with greatest care.After the restoration of map was completed only those who knew the original location of the damaged spots could identify the repaired spots. To complete the restoration, the map was placed in museum quality custom cut mat and mounting board.
