Old Books

I have just spent a fascinating morning visiting the National Library in Valletta. They have an enormous collection of books dating back to the beginnig of the reign of the Knights in Malta includding books the Knights brought from Rhodes. We saw some manuscripts which were 900 years old.
We visited the Restoration Room and saw how they repaired old books - a job I am sure they will never complete, so time consuming and expensive.
We were not allowed to take photos inside so nothing to show you of my visit.
