Balfour & Newton Libraries' Conservation Project - progress so far

L-R: Sue, Wendy, Audrey and Pam (Diane absent)
Our wonderful team of NADFAS Heritage Volunteers has now cleaned 79% of the Balfour & Newton Libraries' Special Collections! 

Here they are pictured with a volume of The birds of Australia : in seven volumes, by John Gould, published by the author in London, 1848. The birds featured are Splendid Grass Parakeets! (Lithograph print with original hand-colouring). This work is now thoroughly clean, thanks to the efforts of the volunteers!

Well done, and many thanks, ladies!
