Having introduced the main concepts and terminology, the author outlines the characteristics and rationale for current methodologies, identifies deteriorating effects and mitigation measures, and summarizes recent research within each discipline. Case studies are included that demonstrate applications of preventive theory to actual practice.Each section of the book has been reviewed by technical experts, practicing conservators, and other conservators involved in graduate training. This will be a valuable text for conservation students and a resource for practitioners who cannot accept practical recommendations without understanding their scientific and historical basis.
