The rare book collection

My apologies for the confusion - the linky didn't work earlier!


Last week I shared some photos and information about the Parkway Central Library in Philadelphia. While we were there, we had a tour of their rare book collection, which is quite impressive. Here are some photos from our tour.

  3. I love books, so I would love to visit here. When we were in our Australian capital Canberra a few years ago, I really enjoyed visiting our National Collections of art, books, etc. So much history. Wonderful. Enjoy your week and thankyou again for the linkup

  9. Crows have a staring role in my next novel, Chorus of Crows. I've been enjoying the smart ravens of the southwest this month. They are worthy literary muses and are almost always harbringers of doom!

  10. What an amazing experience! I remember during college getting to see some DaVinci sketches up close in the rare section of the Getty Museum. I will never forget that! Happy Wednesday, Sue. Thank you for hosting!

  13. Grip hanging out at the Free Library now, right next to Poe's works. Makes you wonder if he'd ever croak out "Nevermore"!

  15. Thank you for hosting such a welcoming party! I have linked up with My Sunday Snapshot (wordless link party) at #39.
    I sure enjoy libraries, especially the older libraries for the design/architecture.
    Take care and best wishes.
