In this chapter, a solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (ss-NMR) Study of sixteenth century book is reported. Cross polarization Magic Angle Spinning Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (13C(1H) CP MAS NMR) spectra of paper samples collected from the book, allowed us to obtain information on its state of conservation. The physico-chemical characterization of two parchment samples collected from the cover book was performed trough the evaluation of the changes in line width and intensity of signals in the spectra.
