Help us conserve treasured items for future generations .

Each item and object in RCS Englands archives and collections is rich with significance and context in its own right and sometimes, as we dig deeper, themes emerge which are surprisingly relevant today.

This year we are conserving nine original texts on a broad continuum from 1554 to 1895 for which the themes of reviving the enlightenment and marginalised figures resonate through. Each piece provides us with glimpses into the major tectonic shifts in thinking from Europe's most noted Enlightenment thinkers as well as specific stories of female doctors and patients in late Victorian London.

To view the items and for more information, please click HERE.

As ever, we need your help to help ensure that they survive, so that they can be made accessible to future generations. Please donate today to ensure that these items can be preserved for many years to come.

We look forward to keeping you updated with the progress of conservation.
