Restoration of a medieval, 13th century, handwriting on parchment

A challenge on our working bench!

We restore books from different centuries in our studio, but one dating from the 13th century is a rarity.

The Hs. IV 138, a handwriting on parchment, didn't look disastrous, but the difficulties were to be found in the details which made it one of our more challenging restorations.

The report is only available in Dutch, but we illustrated it with a lot of pictures!

Please look at the pdf.
