This book is the first to bring together in one comprehensive volume a wide range of key topics in glass and ceramics conservation. Scientific research in deterioration mechanisms and in the methods and materials of conservation processes are dealt with extensively by twenty authors, each internationally respected in their subject. The training available for glass and ceramics conservation is covered in contributions by five course directors at colleges in the USA and Europe. The book is designed for conservators, curators, conservation scientists, and ceramics and glass technologists.

Paul Perrot, formerly Director of the Corning Museum of Glass, writes in his introduction to the book:
"Ceramics and, later, glass are among the most fundamental substances in humanity's technological and social developmen. They, and especial ceramics, testify to a sense of continuity in the needs of the human condition and of its higher aims and achievement. As such the conservation of ceramics and glass deserves the thorough probing reflected in these pages"
