book with filigree silver binding - National Library of Sweden BOOK LOVE

"Ich träumte von den Schmerzen der Dichter; ich weinte mit ihnen ihre schönsten Tränen, ich empfand sie nach bis zum Herzensgrunde; sie ergriffen, zerrissen mich, und zuweilen war mir, als machte mich der Enthusiasmus, den sie mir einflößten, zu ihresgleichen."  Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880)

The musty scent of an old book adds to the adventure you find within its' pages. I would love to take this candle in hand and wander down the long hallway toward the library.

Beautiful collection of antique books.
