#very old books!
Some good things happened today. Others, not so good.
Got to look through a first folio of Shakespeare, it was absolutely beautiful. Someone [Shakespeare’s friend, apparently] had written notes in it, about the plays he’d seen and which actors he liked - it was incredible. Going back to visit it tomorrow…
Also looked at a huge book previously owned by Louis XIV. Took me a while to get over the awe and actually dare to touch the thing, it was enormous and had Louis’ crest on the cover.
Glasgow uni is actually the best.
"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder.
Which, as they kiss, consume."
[from William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, Act 2 Scene 6]
