    Excerpt from A Handbook for Readers at the British Museum

Comparison, we should think, could not be drawn between them, nor, perhaps, ought it.

    In the reign of James I. This library is said to have been in a ¿ourishing condition, well stored with all sorts of good books from the beginning of printing; but in succeeding reigns it was sadly neglected, and disgracefully housed.
