Eton College Library Trip 2017

On Tuesday November 28 the Bibliomaniacs visited Eton college library to see the Gutenberg bible and many other books such as a Quran from Spain, a Muslim country in the Fourteenth century before becoming Catholic under the reign of Eleanor Castille. Furthermore we saw the first images seen under a microscope. Lastly we were invited to see Eton's newest exhibition about travel. We saw a mini model of the Beagle, which was the ship Darwin was on when he create of evolution. However I think that we were most enjoyed to see the hidden doorway behind the bookshelves leading up toward the book storage. After we visited the library, we went to a nearby cafe and had some drinks!
