Updated to address twenty-first-century issues, Binding and Care of Printed Music, Revised Edition by Alice Carli remains the essential manual for music librarians and conservators. The detailed, step-by-step instructions have been updated and streamlined, and a full treatment of digitization is part of this edition, so that readers can benefit from both the theoretical underpinnings of digital preservation and a practical, cost-effective workflow. New tips, tricks, and procedures have been integrated as well. The revised edition is also profusely illustrated with hundreds of photographs taken by the author to clarify the descriptions of the binding and repair techniques covered in the book. As with the first edition, the manual's detailed approach is designed as an introduction for staff with little or no previous conservation experience, while also offering a fresh perspective for career conservators, particularly regarding the special needs of musical scores.
