Beautiful Antique Books - Montacute House Somerset

Historical books are exquisite, handmade, intricately embossed and inlaid with gold leaf. Montacute House has an exceptional library; displayed on neat symmetrical shelving and protected by decorative metal grids is an extensive collection of leather bound books. 

Large centralised tables display large books; the wood is French polished to a high gloss / mirror finish over many years, creating a fabulous reflection - perfect to photograph. Bx
