 A fascinating series!

Thanks to you both !

Actually i had a calendar of my home region in mind, and with this i asked for admittance to take photos ("normal" photography is allowed but not with a tripod),

Thanks, most of the books except at the main hall (see above) are behind glass and i did not take more of these "book Studies"  but  i can show you some other pics ....
for example : A discharge letter not only out of the time of Johannes Gutenberg but also printed by himself from 1455

One of the most important books there is "The Gospels of Henry the Lion", when bought in December ´83 at Sotheby´s  the most expensive book ever.... shown here under glas as a faksimile

To me  it is not only the architecture and the design  but also the living history of all the books lying there... Imagine: People like Voltaire, brothers Humboldt, even Casanova  stayed there to read and to study...

These are just amazing shots (in available light) and so very interesting. If only the book stacks could talk! Thank you for sharing these remarkable photographs, so well done in a challenging setting.

Cheers,
Rog
