The Beinecke Library, one of the world’s greatest repository of books and manuscripts documenting the humanities, is also one of the gems of 20th-century modernist architecture. This book takes the visitor through the building with gorgeous views of the Gordon Bunshaft structure and into the reading room, with essays by library curators on the treasures it holds. A must-have for aficionados of rare books, this volume lovingly shows how a great research library is at the heart of the university educational experience.
