Chancellor Green Library at Princeton University is a classic example of Neo-Gothic architecture. Constructed in 1872, the highly ornate building is filled with gables, arches, buttresses and diamond-shaped stained glass windows. Designed as an octagonal rotunda, it was the first building on the growing campus to be built for use as a library. http://www.janetcampbell.ca/
