Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This thesis disserts on the preservation of historical libraries located in the midst of circuits of house-museums, where the bindings in those books contain special significance. It comments on the house-museum as a particular museological typology, where libraries need to be treated under the principles of conservation-restoration. This work also discusses preservation actions taken with the purpose of protecting the Rui Barbosa House Museum bibliographical collection and the characteristics of their bindings. It presents the results on the diagnosis conducted among selected books and the interventions made to regain their original attributes and historical identities.
