This book features exceptionally important tapestries from major European collections showing the world-class research - scientific, artistic and historical - applied to their preservation. The collections, mostly of Renaissance Flemish tapestries, belong to the UK's Royal Collection at Hampton Court Palace (for example, a piece from a set depicting 'The Story of Tobias' first noted in Henry VIII's inventory of 1547); the Spanish Royal Collections tapestries at the Palacio Real, Madrid; and tapestries from several sites in Belgium. The information is presented in an understandable and practical way.
