The Radcliffe Camera, Oxford

46/52 for 52 of 2011

This week's theme was: Mostly one colour

The distinctive Radcliffe Camera building was completed in 1748 and soon known as 'the Physic Library'. Despite its name, its acquisitions were varied for the first sixty years, but from 1811 its intake was confined to works of a scientific nature.

After the Radcliffe Science Library moved into another building, the Radcliffe Camera became home to additional reading rooms of the Bodleian Library.

[Details now corrected after I had previously mis-identified it as something different.]

PS Apologies to my LJ friends who live in the Oxford area, but because I was visiting the city with G, I didn't really know what our plans were until the very last minute, so it wasn't possible to arrange any sort of meet up.
