Lines are plentiful in this photo taken in The Long Room at Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland. At nearly 65 metres in length (213 feet), it is filled with 200,000 of the Library’s oldest books and is one of the most impressive libraries in the world. When it was built between 1712 and 1732, The Long Room had a flat ceiling, shelving for books on the lower level and an open gallery. In 1801 the Library was given the right to claim a free copy of every book published in Britain and Ireland, so by the 1850’s the shelves were completely full. In 1860 the roof was raised to allow for construction of the beautiful barrel-vaulted ceiling and upper gallery bookcases. The Library is also home to the famous Book of Kells.
