Rare Books in the Press - Exploring the World’s Greatest Libraries
“Some book collectors do not care very much about where they store their books. The English King Henry VIII, had a fine collection of books, but when visitors came to view them they were horrified by the conditions they were stored in, commenting on how they were stacked randomly on the floor and in untidy heaps covering every available surface. Thankfully, since Roman times, if not before, others have cherished books and wished to show them off to their best advantage.”
From Italy to France, South Korea, Austria, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands and the United States. The Huffington Post shows the world’s greatest libraries.
