About this Item

6.5 x 9.75 inches. cloth, dust jacket. 336 pages. Abridged by Christian Gottlieb. First edition. This library is the historical book collection of the Royal House of Denmark for the last 300 years. Founded in the mid-18th century, the Library has been in the possession of the reigning monarch, passed on from king to king for generations, and has been, thus far, little known to the public. Only during the last 20 years, during the reign of Queen Margrethe II, has the Library been opened to the public (within certain limitations.) Presented both in Danish and English, this book has been published to celebrate the silver jubilee of Queen Margrethe II. This work contains descriptions of the monarchy and its relationship to the library, the fires that ocurred in 1794 and 1884, the physical movements of the library, the various collections with sections on bindings and special collections, the librarians and their work, plus a chapter on the library placed in a European context. Illustrated with some in color. Bookseller Inventory # 96264
