'Textiles in Trust' celebrates the centenary of the National Trust and contains much of interest to anyone concerned with the care of historic textiles - upholstery, embroidery, costumes, curtains, carpet and tapestry. The papers presented in this volume demonstrate the tremendous ingenuity, skill and painstaking care of the conservators who undertake work for the National Trust in its continuing endeavour to preserve the contents of historic country houses for the future.

This volume presents the proceedings of the symposium of the same name held in September 1995 and was published in association with the National Trust.

Reviews
...[goes] long way in discussing the range of preservation and presentation techniques for textiles as these techniques are practiced in the 20th century, and...Textiles in Trust also provide[s] a good summary of historical approaches to treatment for long-term (permanent) display.
