Books and Manuscripts

By very nature, books and manuscripts suffer wear and tear. Small, repeated and unconscious actions can sometimes result in serious damage. Also, be careful not to use glues and adhesives as the acid content can do more damage than good.

Cleaning Dust and dirt can damage books, so dust regularly.

Display Do not leave books open face downwards as this weakens the spine. Avoid leaving books in direct sunlight.

Handling Dirty hands can introduce elements of decay so avoid eating or drinking whilst reading.

Storage Try to keep temperatures moderate and stable, ideally not higher than 20C.

The Trusted Experts on the site will advice you about restoration and many other matters related to what we hope will be a very enjoyable and at times profitably hobby and past time.
