A sectional view of NYPL, 1911

February 1, 2010

“The seven tiers of stacks in which many of the books of the New York Public Library are shelved. Elevators transfer the books to the room above as they are called for.” From Scientific American, New York: Munn Co., 1845–.

A nine-level-ed universe of bookiness! With elevators and cardboard boxes! This makes me happy.
