I absolutely love this book!

It's well written, informative and is the sort of thing you can dip in and out of. I think it's a book that's helpful if you're a conservator. I've just completed a work placement in textile conservation and would like to do a Masters Degree, so for me it was a wonderful insight into the amount and variety of work involved in conserving historic houses and objects as well as the processes involved.

I also think this is just an interesting book. If you like to visit National Trust properties it gives you a really lovely glimpse behind the scenes of how they're now run & cared for as well as explaining how things were looked after in the past.. Or if youhave older objects in your home that you need to care for than this book would be helpful to you.

If you get it look out for the photo on page 444 - it's upside down!

If you are interested in how the National Trust looks after all its buildings and contents or if you have a very old house and antiques this book is a mine of useful information. It covers everything from glass to carpet, window lead to chimneys. It is very much a book for dipping into and discovering new facts, did you know that old glass can start to 'weep' and the glaze on china can become 'crazed'?

The only book you need to sort out those difficult cleaning problems and a fascinating insight into the work of the NT housekeeping staff

The core text for all collections care - very sensible and readable advice. The NT team of conservators and curators share their advice - especially useful when it is better to do nothing and just monitor. Great value
