You’re thinking of adopting a manuscript page? That’s great news!

Manuscripts provide a direct link to the past. The cords have been read countless times and the beautiful images and illuminations admired across the centuries. By adopting a manuscript page, you will be playing an important role in helping to protect these works of art for the future.
