Dear Val,
I thought you might like an update on how we are proceeding with your register. Things are going well, I've made a detailed condition report and have taken many digi pictures. I have also started to flatten some of the folios. I thought you might like one or two pictures of the very first folio I tackled. This first folio is one of the most stable, therefore a very good choice to start with.

PB280060 - The folio before humidification

PB280065 - The folio under going humidification in the dome

PB280075 - The folio  being flattened on the suction table

I hope you find these useful, we look forward to seeing you next month.
