Bodleian Library


Бодлианская библиотека(англ. Bodleian Library)

 The library is named after Sir Thomas Bodley (1545-1613), a famous collector of ancient manuscripts, who was serving Queen Elizabeth in the diplomatic service. Meanwhile, Bishop Thomas de Cobham must be considered its founder. It was him who created at the University of Oxford a small collection of books, chained to the shelves in order to avoid their removal from the building. Далее
