 The Famous Chained Library Of Hereford Cathedral- England
In the Middle-Ages books were so valuable that they were more than worth their weight in gold and would be carried around Europe in large treasure chests.  To keep them from being taken centers of learning, which Cathedrals often were, had all their books fastened to bookcases by heavy iron chains. Photos aren’t allowed in this small library which holds amongst other things 8th Century Chronicles and the first edition of Dr Samuel Johnsons  ‘A Dictionary of the English Language’ in England. Constructed in the early 17th century, it is one of the largest surviving examples of a chained library with over 220 manuscripts.
