Description by Agnes Timar-Balazsy and Dinah Eastop 1998, 480 pp. Written by a conservation scientist and a textile conservator, this volume offers comprehensive coverage of the field of textile conservation. It recognizes the fact that many textile conservators lack a scientific background, and provides important information regarding textile chemistry, including a large number of illustrations and case studies. It recognizes the inherent gap between the information found in chemistry textbooks and the available information on textile conservation. Finally, this new volume discusses material chemistry, dyes, finishes, and threads; soil and stains and treatments, both current and historic, to aid in their removal; storage and display options and materials; and a variety of other aspects of textile conservation. Hardback.
