Taking digital microphotographs of relevant details on items in the History of Pharmacy Collection is a novel research method envisaged by our project. Dr. Magó Andrea Beatrix is our specialist collaborator and her analyses will allow us to clarify certain faded inscriptions, to clarify production details (book binding decoration or painting layers on drug jars, for example), to identify some of the materials employed (parchment vs paper) and some of the natural specimens preserved. The use of ultraviolet and infrared light is sometimes very relevant for our research that fuces on different types of materials.
