“Technical Innovations in Conserving Museum Collections & Architectural Heritage Structures:  New Roles for Sunlight & Photocatalytic Agents”

 

Cultural treasures --- from outdoor sculptures and monuments to indoor museum collections and artifacts --- require continual diligent care and maintenance.  Though we seldom think about it, all are subject to soiling and biological attacks that degrade.  Outdoors:  cleaning techniques, especially pressure washing, and biocides are themselves destructive and have adverse environmental impacts.  Indoors:   storage cabinets and display cases “off gas” volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that contribute to deterioration and pose indoor air quality hazards to museum goers.  Following an overview of photocatalytic technology, speaker Andrew Voros will describe methods that outdoors passively make structures biostatic and self-cleaning; and which indoors render VOCs into carbon dioxide and water.  He will also address issues of difficult access, costs and insurance considerations.

Curatorial Tour of "Gutenberg and After"

Curatorial Tour of "Gutenberg & After" at Firestone Library.  

Wednesday November 13, 2019; 6 to 8 pm at the Milberg Gallery; Firestone Library.  

Wine and Cheese will be served.  Free to PA3 dues-paying members and one guest per member

** PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED VIA EMAIL TO SEV. ADMISSION IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 20 REGISTRANTS. **

Bibliophile and philanthropist William H. Scheide '36 bequeathed to Princeton his rare book library, including one of the world's greatest collections of early European printing. Today, a new exhibition opens in the Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery, “Gutenberg & After: Europe’s First Printers 1450-1470,” showcasing the Scheide collection alongside treasures borrowed from nine leading institutions in the United Kingdom and North America.

The exhibition tells the story of the two decades that transformed text production and distribution across Europe. It is the first exhibition to focus on the inaugural years of the spread of printing.

The cornerstones of the exhibition are the Gutenberg Bible of 1455 and the 1457 Mainz Psalter, both from the Scheide Library. These two earliest datable printed books are contextualized by a careful selection of other early European printing that documents both Mainz printing even earlier than the Gutenberg Bible, and the spread of printing to other towns, including Strasbourg, Bamberg, Rome, Venice, and Paris.
