At present hardly any literature is available in a composite form on conservation of art heritage on the techniques of the world adopted in countries, situated in different climatic zones. This lacuna would be filled by the papers presented here, covering different branches of conservation science, including different types of materials like stone, paintings, paper etc. The papers presented in this volume are in the form of review articles and case studies. The book, the only one of its type, should prove to be of immense interest to art lovers, conservation students and conservationists curators of museums all over the world. This volume contains 23 papers and 5 tributes. It has about 350 pages of text and is illustrated with figures and plates.
