This view shows the inside of the longer of the two halls that house the Tripitaka Koreana.
Will Pryce: "This is a very imposing library from a time when Portugal was extremely wealthy and powerful. It is very dark but features intricate gold leaf which gives it magical luminosity. The backs of the bookcases each have different color, and there are integrated ladders that pull out, and secret doors that lead to reading rooms."
Abbey of St Gall Library, 1763. St Gallen, Switzerland.
The library has manyforms of decoration, including putti in niches above the cases, representing the mechanical disciplines and the fine arts.

The books in the originalcollection were rebound in white at enormous expense to match the rest of the decorative scheme.
