The Pierpont Morgan Library in NYC is one of the grandest libraries in the United States. It was designed by Charles McKim and built in 1906 to house the private library of financier J. P. Morgan and cost 1.2 million to build. Morgan, who was a noted collector, included in his library manuscripts and printed books, some of them in rare bindings, and his collection of prints and drawings. The library was made a museum and research library administered by a private trust in 1924.
