Самая большая книга

Оригинал взят у je_nny в Самая большая книга


Самая большая книга в мире: высота 1,75 метра!
Нужно шесть человек для ее переноски!
Это подарок от амстердамского профессора Йоханнеса Klencke - так называемый Klencke Атлас -  был сделан в 1660 году для английского короля Карла II. Большие карты должны были быть вырезаны и наклеены на стены, но этого не случилось.



The biggest book in the world

Standing 1.75 meters tall (almost 6 ft), this is the biggest book you’ll ever read - and the biggest ever produced. It takes six people to carry; flipping the page is like an exercise at the gym. A gift from the Amsterdam professor Johannes Klencke, the so-called Klencke Atlas was made in 1660 for the English King Charles II. The large maps were meant to be cut out and pasted on the wall, which never happened. It is a beautiful book - but definitely unsuitable for taking to the beach this summer.

A British Library online exhibit about Atlases is found here.

Ни в коем случае! Двери в библиотеке ломать нельзя.
