There is little point in conserving an object if the storage conditions to which it is to be returned contributed to its deterioration. This book presents the full range of tests, for materials used in constructing storage and display areas, which are used at the British museum and describes standard procedures for carrying them out. It is a valuable source of information for curators, conservators and designers and will enable those with access to relatively basic equipment to carry out their own tests.
