A while ago GC asked
>All drawings I've seen of libraries
>have books standing on shelves. Is this incorrect?
Here's another picture of a library (albeit much later, c.1740) with
books lying flat on the shelves.

The painting is by Carl Fredrik Svan, probably the Library at Rånäs
Manor in Uppland. c1740. (The scan is by Rolf.)
The older I get, the better I was.
