Magnificent 19th-Century Library Shelves 350,000 Books

Feast your eyes on the elegant grandeur of the Real Gabinete Português de Leitura (known in English as the Royal Portuguese Reading Room or the Royal Cabinet), a 19th-century library in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Constructed from 1880 to 1887 under the direction of architect Rafael da Silva e Castro, the magnificent library has the distinction of holding the largest and most valuable collection of Portuguese works outside of Portugal, with over 350,000 volumes filling its countless bookshelves.

    ‘Of all the digs she made, why did Skeeter have to close with that jab to the ribs? Who does she think she is? What’s she trying to say? That I’m bad at my job? That I’m a bad mother?’
    ‘Huh?’ Ron tore his eyes away from the match programme. ‘Oh, don’t let her get to you, Hermione-‘
    ‘You wouldn’t be saying the same if she’d called you a cold-hearted careerist.’

    ‘Like I said. Don’t let her get to you-‘
    ‘I’ll let the dross she writes for the Prophet slide when she stops putting the world on my shoulders just because I’m a woman! I swear, if I was Minister, I’d have her turned into a Flobberworm every time she so much as looked at that Quick-Quotes Quill…’
