Summary "In his work Conservation Skills Chris Caple provides an overview of the issues facing conservators of historical and artistic works. This extensive work not only describes the nature of conservation but also provides an ethical framework to which the conservation of objects as diverse as 'old masters' to the ephemera of the twentieth century can be related."--Jacket.
