Intaglio printed anatomical illustrations, Italian 18th century

The illustrations printed in black ink on laid paper were mounted on fabric on to period folding display frames. They were removed from the frames and fabric to facilitate cleaning with water, stain reduction and repair which consisted of filling the losses with paper pulp, mending and reinforcement with Japanese paper and wheat starch paste, remounting to the original fabric and frames, and inpainting the areas of loss to match the surrounding background without design completion.
