A Discovery of Space

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:50 PM

Fiction set in Duke Humfrey’s Reading Room at
the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford:

“I walked quickly through the original, fifteenth-century part of the library, past the rows of Elizabethan reading desks with their three ascending bookshelves and scarred writing surfaces. Between them, Gothic windows directed the reader’s attention up to the coffered ceilings, where bright paint and gilding picked out the details of the university’s crest of three crowns and open book and where its motto, ‘God is my illumination,’  was proclaimed repeatedly from on high.”
