The Enchantingly Beautiful Radcliffe Camera Library – Oxford.
Radcliffe Camera was designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor and built by James
Gibbs between 1737 and 1748 to house the Radcliffe Science Library, the
Radcliffe Camera (camera is another word for ‘room’) is now a reading
room for the Bodleian Library.
Built in the English Palladian style, it forms part of the Bodleian Library complex.
It houses mainly English, History and Theology books, and because it’s a
working library, only students and scholars are admitted.
