This book chronicles their history, conservation, and reconservation." "In meticulous detail, using both traditional methods and new X-ray and electronic imaging investigative techniques, Maude de Schauensee probes and analyzes the construction of the two lyres held by the University Museum while providing an economic, historical, and sociological context in which to better understand them. She examines the decorative motifs along with the materials and the techniques of the builders of these instruments. The illustrations - 10 pieces of line art, 25 photographs, 6 CAT-scans, 5 X-rays, and 24 color plates - supply additional details. This book presents new information and conservation descriptions for the first time."" ;
