The Bodleian Li­brary, one of the old­est in Europe de­scended by the univer­sity’s first li­brary in 1320, houses over 12 mil­lion tomes. So vast is this col­lec­tion that Rad­cliffe Li­brary was taken over by the Bod (as is fondly known) and re­named Rad­cliffe Cam­era in 1860 to house even its grow­ing col­lec­tion. By 1909, an un­der­ground book de­pos­i­tory had to be ex­ca­vated un­derneath Rad­cliffe Square.
