This is an interesting website!

Given the date of the shown document (1888) it IS in a bad condition. I can
confirm that the much older Lutheran church books at the Plock Archive are
in a much better condition.

I also think that some of the information given on this website might be out
of date. My researches at the Plock Archive last summer had been
uncomplicated and rewarding. No license necessary and a lot of friendly and
competent people there to help you (some of them even speaking English).

See also the very nice and informative official website of the State Archive
in Plock:

They give very detailed information about the history of the archive and
also have some photos of the way records are stored. They look much better
in color.

The webpage has a picture of an old church book register.  This gives you
an idea of the condition of the some of the books - this one is not bad at

Further down the webpage is a photograph of how records are stored in the
Plock State Archives.  This is an eye opener!.
