      We have unearthed a collection of wood-backed zinc and copper etching plates (along with a couple of woodcuts) dating from the 1920s-1940s–they were used to print some of our old library publications and bookplates. They are currently in individual manila envelopes, most of which are dirty and torn–the plates themselves seem to be in good condition. What is the best way to store them? In archival boxes? Should they be wrapped in something?
