Sir John Soane Museum - Book Survey

With thanks to funding from the Eileen Harris Book Conservation Fund, Professor Nicholas Pickwoad together with three research assistants were able to carry out a thorough review of the conservation and accommodation of the books in Soane’s Library, which will enable the Museum to make a start on its programme of conserving Soane’s collection of books. It is the first full conservation survey of all of the 7,000 bound volumes in the library.
