Project Notes
Correspondence from Olivier Donneau and Cecile Humblet, 17-21 October 2008, indicates presence of 18th-c. Shahnama needing restoration:

It’s an 18th century (1734), 659 paper folios manuscript, of which 83 have miniature paintings (that aren’t identified but seem really rich and beautiful). The body of the volume measures +/- 208 x 185 x 58 mm.The binding is a 19th century Western, signed “Marius Michel” (aubergine morocco without pattern, 4 false raised bands without title). Its structure strains the body and particularly the painted folios. I have already noticed some uplifts on the first title page. It absolutely can’t be read opened without damaging or making the damage worse. The first problem is that, although this bookbinding isn’t really representative of Marius Michel’s work, I have to preserve it also.
