Part 5, No.2 Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, Connecticut. This place really stands out with its granite frame & inch and a quarter thick, translucent Vermont marble panels. A shame I didn't have a wider angle lens to play with. #connecticut #newhaven #yale #yaleuniversity #beinecke #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #architecturephotography #architecture #raw_architecture #architecture_hunter #1shothub #canonuk #canon6d #myUSadventure2018

Martellus’ Map before vs after Multi Spectral Imaging • This 1491 world map created by Henricus Martellus is believed to have been used by Christopher Columbus on his journey West. Thanks to #multispectralimaging many of the map’s details lost to time have been brought to light, making the illegible legible. One of our favorite discoveries: “A sea monster that is like the sun when it shines, whose form can hardly be described, except that its skin is soft and its body huge.”🐋 • #MegaVisionImaging #chetvanduzer #culturalheritage #cartography #MartellusMap #yaleuniversity #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary

Another update on one of our PhD candidates in the United States! During her visit to the US, Celia went to the National Archives and George Mason University in Fairfax FT, where she looked at plays written for the Federal Theatre Project, surrounded by beautiful fall colors. Her next stop was the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, where she went to specifically look at the papers of author Langston Hughes. Next Stop: Boston University! #RIAS #Roosevelt #RooseveltianCentury #US #FederalTheatreProject #NationalArchives #GeorgeMasonUniversity #BeineckeRareBookandManuscriptLibrary #BostonUniversity #Fall
The wiki page about the Beinecke library turned out to be quite interesting: “It is one of the largest buildings in the world entirely dedicated to rare books and manuscripts. On a sunny day the marble transmits filtered daylight to the interior in a subtle golden amber glow, a product of its thin profile. These panels are framed by a hexagonal grid of Vermont Woodbury granite veneer, fastened to a structural steel frame. The outside dimensions have "Platonic" mathematical proportions of 1:2:3 (height: width: length)» #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #beineckelibrary #yaleuniversity #yalecampus #yale #library #libraryporn #librarylife #librarydesign #librarylife 📚 #phdlife #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturehunter #architectural #newengland #newenglandfall #newenglandliving #newengland_igers #ig_newengland

If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. - #tonimorrison #ourstories #stilllefttobetold #beinecke #yale #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #newhaven #books #libraries #faves #fall 📸: @shayshayshay

GOLDEN TOE [Werbung *Ortsnennung] Morgen geht bei uns die Schule wieder los. Zum Glück sind wir auf der sicheren Seite - haben unsere Kinder doch bereits den Fuß von John Harvard und - letztes Jahr - den Zeh von Theodore D. Woolsey, dem 10. Präsidenten der YALE University, gerubbelt. 😂👞🎓 #läuft Ich muss zugeben, dass mir der YALE-Campus ein bisschen besser gefallen hat, als der der Harvard-University. Zu gerne würde ich mir ja noch mal Princeton und die Brown anschauen... ganz zarte Plänchen werden gerade "gepflanzt"... = = = #yale #yaleuniversity #theodoredwoolsey #newhaven #gutenbergbibel #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #beineckelibrary #yalecampus #familyvacation #makingmemories

"In a good book room you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them." > > > Mark Twain > > > the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library is one of the world’s foremost collections of rare manuscripts. Opened in 1963, the library is renowned for its translucent marble facade and the world-renowned glass book tower sheltered within – a dramatic arrangement resulting from the particular requirements of a repository for literary artifacts.

The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library is AMAZING! In addition to the awesomeness of its actual contents — which include the Gutenberg Bible! — its outer walls are made of 1.5” thick marble that lets a bit of light through but blocks the UV rays. #yale #beinecke #beineckelibrary #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #gutenbergbible #librarygeek
Ripely scroll on loan to New York Historical Society Museum. That is one seriously Long exhibit case. #onloanyul #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary
Cornelli celestial globe is safely installed today. Will be on view at the NYHS museum in the Harry Potter history of magic exhibit in NYC. #gatesconservationlab #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #onloanYUL #lanmanglobes
Hail Yale!!! One of my many stops while I was visiting Yale was the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library built in 1963 and designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. A six story above ground glass enclosed tower of books rests inside a windowless facade. The library’s collection totals roughly 1 million volumes and several million manuscripts. The collection normally houses the controversial Vinland Map which is currently on exhibit at Mystic Seaport and available to public view for the first time in over 50 years. Coincidentally, one of my next stops just happened to be Mystic Seaport! Stayed tuned for more vacation pics! #yale #yaleuniversity #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #beinecke #beineckelibrary #hailyale #midcentury #midcenturymodern #architecture #midcenturyarchitecture #photography #library #books #rare #rarebooks #intellectuals #genius #privateschool #education #college #skidmoreowingsmerrill #vacation

Item Z04: I "read" one of the original Guttenberg bibles!! To be fair, it was pretty difficult to read due to the font and the language, but I recognized one word. #YBL #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #guttenberg
Swipe -> to see what’s inside this incredible windowless marble building.... The books were endless! Who knew one place could hold that many rare books! 😯 #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #beineckelibrary #nerdingout #wow
Thrilled to be a part of the exhibition Eye on the West, organized by George Miles at the #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary in New Haven.

The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is the rare book library and literary archive of the Yale University Library in New Haven, Connecticut. Situated on Yale University's Hewitt Quadrangle, the building was designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and completed in 1963. Established by a gift of the Beinecke family and given its own endowment, the library is financially independent from the university and is co-governed by the University Library and Yale Corporation. It is one of the largest buildings in the world entirely dedicated to rare books and manuscripts. A six-story above-ground glass-enclosed tower of book stacks is encased by a windowless façade, supported by four monolithic piers at the corners of the building. The exterior shell is structually supported by a steel frame with pylons embedded 15M to bedrock at each corner pier. The façade is constructed of translucent veined marble and granite. #beineckelibrary #beineckerarebookandmanuscriptlibrary #gordonbunshaft #jewelbox #newhaven #architecture #modernism #Florence Knoll #marcelbreuer #translucentmarble #pier #myoldstompinggrounds
