This original lithographic map of Fremont's 1842 expedition was sent to the Preservation/Conservation Laboratory, from the Nevada State Museum.

It was in fragile condition due to the overall deterioration and general wear & tear of the paper.

The map was backed using a high-quality acid-free mulberry paper and methyl cellulose, greatly reinforcing it's integrity.

Later, the document was encapsulated in an acid-free mylar encasing.

Note: the 3rd image shows the Las Vegas area.
