A description of conservation practice and restoration methods for documents and objects stored in museums, art galleries and record offices. Each chapter describes the general structure and properties of the specific material.
A wide range of human artefacts, such as paper, textiles, glass and ceramics, are subject to steady continuous deterioration from a variety of sources. Increasing interest is being taken in the scientific investigation of causes and remedies for these phenomena. Each chapter in this volume deals with one such artefact and illustrates the origin of deterioration, restoration techniques and subsequent preservation. The final chapter looks at recent developments in preservation techniques.
