NewYork City - love it, never have enough time to do everything on my list. I did get to the Morgan Libary this trip, and what a treat. Pierpont Morgan, financier, assembled his world class collection of books, bindings, medieval manuscripts, literary and historical manuscripts, plus drawings and prints in the 1890s.
Today the library and museum, brownstone and new modern airy spaces, welcome the visitor into another world teeming with a vast rich history.
Here is one view of the East Room, filled with rare books.
Another view of the East Room. Note the stained glass windows, the vaulted decorated ceiling, wood carvings, and ancient tapestries.
Here's a postcard illustration, courtesy of the Morgan collection - A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh and his Ten Honey Pots by artist Ernest Howard Shepard. So many gems to unearth in The Morgan Library. It's heavenly.
