This book is a comprehensive resource covering the principles and practice of the conservation and restoration of furniture, and other decorative art objects made wholly or partly of wood. It integrates theory with practice to show the principles which govern interaction between wooden objects, the environmental and conservation treatments and the factors which need to be taken into account to arrive at acceptable solutions to conservation problems. The practical knowledge and experience of a team of conservators active in the field are bought together with theoretical and reference material from diverse sources and unified within a systematic framework. Specialist conservators from related disciplines cover diverse materials often incorporated into furniture.

Now in its fourth fully revised and updated edition, this practical manual describes and illustrates every aspect of conservation work and will interest anyone responsible for the care and upkeep of a stone-built 18th century building, or with our architectural heritage. The substructure, external walls, rooves, internal details and external works of a Georgian house are studied and explained in great detail, and an entirely new section on decoration and finishes has been added. The Care and Conservation of Georgian Houses is based on the New Town of Edinburgh, described by Lord Clark as 'one of the finest pieces of town planning in Europe'. Produced under the aegis of the Edinburgh New Town Conservation Committee, the book is unsurpassed in the wealth and clarity of its information and illustrations and the excellence of its practical guidance. This fourth edition provides more technical information than previous editions and places greater emphasis on interiors. Edinburgh's 318 hectare New Town, started in 1767, is still largely unspoiled and uniquely a residential central area. It is also an outstanding Conservation Area of international importance. The success of the New Town Conservation Committee since 1970 in safeguarding the listed buildings, and ensuring that they are appropriately repaired, is due to the co-operation and expert knowledge of owners, authorities, amenity societies, architects and contractors who understand and respect the quality of architecture and the forms of construction. This book is evidence of such co-operation; the text, first written in 1976, has been updated three times as the experience of the authors and their advisers increased. This fourth edition has been completely rewritten; each page and illustration has been checked and revised and a new chapter on shop-fronts has been added. This disciplined neo-classical design of the New Town depends on precise and accurate detailing and on the choice of appropriate materials for repairs; this 'maintenance' manual sets out every aspect of typical external and structural repairs, with advice on legislation, grants and procedures for carrying out repairs which, in urban areas, are often shared between several owners. Completely updated with greater emphasis on interiors Acts as an owners guide and professional handbook Gives advice on legislation, grants and the organisation of commercial repairs

Conservation of 20th Century Furniture provides a comprehensive coverage of materials and techniques that are encountered in twentieth century furniture, through both a contextual point of view and through a range of practice perspectives. After putting both the design and manufacture, and the conservation, of 20th centry furniture into context, this volume then offers an A-Z of materials. Within each chapter a wide variety of material types are discussed observed, analysed and contextualized, and further sources for consultation provided. The furniture discussed ranges from designer craftsman individually-made pieces to factory produced batch items, and includes cabinet work, decoration, surface finishes and upholstery, observing the traditional repertoire of materials and the innovative materials and processes introduced during the century. Conservation of 20th Century Furniture is the primary resourse for those studying and conserving twentieth century furniture, and is also of interest to those concerned with a wide range of topics in the manufacture, history and care of twentieth century furniture including curators, dealers and collectors.

This well referenced book provides an amply illustrated publication on upholstery conservation which discusses and reviews the issues related to the care, interpretation and treatment of upholstered furniture. Through many well illustrated case studies the inter-disciplinary collaboration fundamental to upholstery conservation, and the complex decision-making process involved in the treatment of upholstered furniture, are made evident. The case histories are contributed by leading international practitioners in the field and concern objects and collections in the care of English Heritage, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other internationally renowned institutions. Likewise, the contributors, from both sides of the Atlantic, are world-renowned specialists and leaders in this area of conservation working for the public and private sectors. The case histories, illustrated in colour, black and white and specially prepared line drawings, concern object treatment and documentation, the conservation of information, the function and the artefact. They range from the documentation of eighteenth century removable chair covers and the treatment of a nineteenth century carriage to a twentieth century foam-filled chair belonging to a museum.
