'...fills a gap in conservation literature which has been evident for years...will become a standard work which is consulted by conservators and museum scientists for years to come.' - The Conservator '...an admirable model textbook which sets out the logic of conservation, and its measurements and tools, with an irreproachable dry brevity.' Royal Institute of British Architects Journal 'No museum library should be without a copy.' Museum News '(An) authoritative guide' Museum Practice
