Morgan Library

Hi collection has many odd things like this casting.

The Morgan Library holds amazing things, Mr. Morgan liked to collect.  One of his passions was books, rare and valuable books.  In his collection are three Gutenberg Bibles....only 40 or so exist in the world, and 4 of them are in NYC the fourth is in the New York City Main Library.
 Silk wall covering in his private den with a picture of Pierpont Morgan over the mantel.

Then were rooms of cases with little trinkets like these.
We were told there is so much in his collection that most of it is in storage and is rotated several times a year.

If you get the chance to go I highly recommend it, to see the building alone is worth
the admission price.
