In addition to these explanations, Tuttle gives an introduction to archival storage and pointers on care, handling, and basic cleaning of valuable documents and other memorabilia. He also includes a lengthy appendix, including a list of recommended preservation supplies and sources for these items, sources of additional information, and an extensive glossary. Paperback.
