Résumé
The history of bronze disease and its treatment is discussed. Particular attention is given to the work of Mond and Cuboni whose experimental studies during the late 19th century provided a scientific basis for the bacterial infection theory. The early studies of Rathgen, Berthelot, and Rosenberg which established the electrochemical nature of bronze disease are also reviewed. Various early treatment methods for the conservation of bronze antiquities exhibiting bronze disease are described including the first use of electrochemical and electrolytic reduction methods.
