Ashleigh N. Ferguson Schieszer, UC Conservationist
To celebrate the upcoming festival of Passover, we invite you to join with Ashleigh N. Ferguson Schieszer, as she describes the intricate process required to restore one of the earliest printed illustrated Haggadot in the rare book collection of the Klau Library. In this session, Ashleigh will discuss how she met the challenges facing her with this amazing historical work to reverse earlier poorly-done repairs. These treatments were conducted over several years, and included preservation of handwritten songs later added to the Klau’s copy. This project was funded by the generous donations of Dr. Valerie Hotchkiss and Dr. David Price.
