A feast of libraries

Curious Expeditions has posted a series of photographs of some of the world’s greatest libraries here (h/t Manfred Kuehn of Taking Note).

For sentimental reasons my personal favourite is still the old British Library Reading Room (memories of many hours spent working on my PhD). One striking omission is Cosin’s Library, Durham (another library which I remember with affection).
