The Library holds many rare, historically and scientifically important botanical books dating from 1486. This includes a renowned collection of flower books and herbals from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Some of these rare volumes now require conservation to preserve them for future generations. The conservation project urgently needs financial support - we are working with our Development team [4.3.1] to secure this vital funding.
