The Codrington Library, All Souls College, Oxford, England

Royal Grammar School Chained Library - Guildford, England - Established in the early 1500s, it contains one of few remaining examples of the practice of chaining books to shelves. This allowed important or useful books to be placed in communal areas for public rather than locked away, paving the way for the public library system. The Headmaster's Study, the Chained Library has books that date back to the 1400s, including early editions of Sir Isaac Newton's Principia. Photo: Traceyp3031
