Book conservation at Chawton House

Our library collection is always changing, as we acquire new works. Conserving books is a crucial part of keeping them accessible for future generations.

In this display, see books owned by the Knight family that have been newly returned to Chawton House by generous donors. Learn about the different techniques used by our volunteer conservators, and hear their stories of working with our most fragile books.
