Summary / Abstract:

ENArticle deals with the restoration of the large scale (205 × 167 cm) Vilnius city plan from the 19th century. Information in the document was not created at the same time. The initial plan consisted of six parts. Each of them was printed on separate paper sheet. Separate parts were connected together with strips of fabric (only remnants of them remained). Later two sheets of paper were attached to the left and rights edges of original document. The plan brought to the restoration centre was folded into many parts, covered with dirt, dusty, spotty, and roughly repaired more than once. As a result, it was heavily thickened, hardened, deformed, and with misaligned drawing lines. In many parts document was broken, cracked and torn. Some fragments of it were missing. Analyses of medium and writing materials were performed before restoring the document. Document was dry cleaned. The plan’s paper sheets were separated while moistening. During the cleaning process materials of previous restoration were removed. Paper was alkalized. The lost fragments of the plan were restored. Torn paper was strengthened “wet method” of reparative paper and straightened. Sheets were combined together with strips of cotton fabric. Folder was made for a further document storage. Restoration of the document was specific. While searching for optimal layout of parts of the plan and joining them usual restorer’s workplace “near the object being restored” became not as usual “above the object”. Work was done kneeling. Specific “procedure” had to be done over and over while gluing fabric strips. At first restorer had to climb on a table, reach places being glued. After the work was done, he had to carefully step off the table without touching of glued parts. After glue got dry this sequence had to be repeated. After restoration document can be properly digitized, used and stored. [From the publication]
