Recommendations for the Conservation of Musical Instruments : An Annotated Bibliography
Recommendations for the Conservation of Musical Instruments : An Annotated Bibliography
CIMCIM recognised the need for a document addressing conservation and restoration of musical instruments after concerns had been expressed that restorations continued to be undertaken that were unacceptable ethically. Although it was agreed that museum codes of ethics and other published works already covered this ground it was nevertheless felt that curators and restorers of musical instruments did not necessarily have access to these publications. This document was formulated to facilitate access to relevant material. It consists of twenty annotated entries on a wide range of musical instrument topics, including care and maintenance, codes of ethics, safe practices, and the concerns of display and performance. An address list of all publishers referred to in the text is provided.
