One of the problems which beset the practical conservation of stone
buildings is the fragmentation of the disciplines involved. This
book, with both volumes now available as one invaluable paperback,
brings these disciplines together by the involvement of
contributors with different experiences and approaches to the same
material. Part one is an introduction to the complexities and
background history of stone conservation followed by the most
comprehensive description yet produced of the building and
decorative stones used in the British Isles. In part two,
practitioners involved in stone conservation describe ways in which
major structural masonry problems, secondary building problems and
different stone surface conditions may be treated. A variety of
building types and environments has been used to ensure that the
broad scope of common problems is covered. This second part of the
book will be of practical value to art historians, archaeologists,
architects, surveyors and engineers, masonry contractors and
sculpture conservators in solving problems and in learning to use
each other's skills and experience.
