Some rules for good conduct
This revised and augmented version, entitled Ancient glass: principles of conservation, display and maintenance, forms part of the vast field of preventive conservation. The book is aimed at everyone with an interest in ancient glass, both professionals and amateurs (conservators, technicians, collectors, archaeologists, students etc.).
Vademecum Glass brings together the rules for good conduct and common sense. It is also designed to enable beginners to start out in the world of glass and changes to its status, teaching them to have a “trained eye” and detect certain anomalies. It reminds archaeologists of the movements that save glass and of good questions to ask themselves. The book also establishes limits to intervention: there are some cases in which only a specialist, a qualified restorer, can intervene.
