Visitors can now search through a catalogue of more than 150,000 books from 140 historic libraries. Historians, students and the public can now view a catalogue of over 150,000 historic books from the National Trust’s collection online. Although the project began in 1958, the majority of the work has taken place within the past five years. The National Trust owns 140 historic libraries which contain 230,000 books bound in 400,000 volumes. The Trust’s diverse collection includes everything from an autographed copy of Virgina Woolf’s 1928 novel Orlando inscribed to the woman who Woolf based the book upon—Vita Sackville-West—to the Bible purportedly used by Charles I on the scaffold in 1649. Approximately 70,000 have yet to be catalogued. The catalogue is available online.
