As interest in China's ancient arts grows, so too does the effort to protect the precious relics available to us today. In collaboration with the National Library of China, Chinese and international scholars alike have come together to learn the delicate art of conserving China's vast amount of ancient and rare books. This volume chronicles their methods (both ancient and modern) of protection, restoration and conservation with full color illustrations of some of China's rarest publications, the likes of which many have never before been seen.
