The Pantheon - Rome, Italy - 126 A.D
Known to Oxford scholars as “Bodley” or simply “the Bod”, The Bodleian Library serves as the main research library of Oxford University. Arts End was built in 1610-1613 and was the first English instance of book shelving being built along the walls, instead of in bays or lecterns jutting out from the walls. The windows at the end of this photo are part of another extension done in 1634 known as Seldon End. The Bodliean is one of the oldest and most beautiful academic libraries in the world.
