This collection consists of two scrapbooks of early Illinois imprints dating from the 1840s and 1850s. These scrapbooks were compiled as samples of job printing work done at the Alton Telegraph Office in southern Illinois. Materials include government and financial documents, event invitations and programs, product labels and advertising, and other printed ephemera. Approximately a hundred of the items were cited in Cecil K. Byrd’s A bibliography of Illinois imprints, 1814-58 (University of Chicago Press, 1966), but these citations represent only a small fraction of the items preserved in the scrapbooks.
The printers scrapbook is a multi-layers digitiation, conservastion and exhibition project. Viisit for project notes and inventories. https://uofi.app.box.com/folder/29634461007
Timeline and Deadlines
DS only needs us to take images of openings, shoot recto/verso of all images to document where things are being removed - only about 10 single page. Humidifaction is being used by Conservation so its possible the opposite pages will be affected so we need to do both front of back of pages.
Pages are marked.
Digitization notes - be conscious of the page texture and embossing during imaging and maybe use raking light to highlight this
RBML/ARCHIVAL CONTENT ONLY - Deliverables (file formats)
