No.10 collection of inscribed books
We are hoping to acquire a total of 922 volumes, which make up 898 inscribed book titles in the drawing room. The collection consists of gift inscriptions from friends, family and well-wishers, unsolicited presentation copies of books by strangers, as well as presentation copies from authors who were genuine friends and colleagues. Together, the inscribed books give a powerful impression of what a public institution Churchill became. The complete story however is yet to be told, with many of the books as-yet unopened whilst in the National Trust's care.
