Enjoy the season’s first Lunch & Learn talk by the Walters Senior Conservator of Manuscripts and Rare Books, Abigail Quandt, who began treatment of The Archimedes Palimpsest in 2000. Referring to detailed notes of the process, Quandt shares an account of her work on the Palimpsest, which includes innovative steps to stabilize the leaves for digital imaging, final repair work and mounting in custom frames.

About the Speaker

Quandt has acted both as consultant and team leader for significant manuscript treatment projects outside the Walters, and has gained an international reputation as an expert in the conservation of medieval manuscripts on parchment.
