  • Virtual Conservation Talk: Restoring a Nineteenth-Century Folio

    The War between the United States and Mexico, Illustrated, an 1851 account of the war featuring twelve detailed hand-colored prints, is one of the treasures in the Wadsworth’s Auerbach Art Library. With the generous support of the Auerbach Library Associates, conservator Laura O’Brien Miller has meticulously mended and cleaned the volume, considered a masterpiece of nineteenth-century publishing. Miller provides an overview of her treatment with librarian Amy Kilkenny and curator Erin Monroe, who outlines the volume's fascinating production, its role as a record of the war, and its associations with Hartford.
