#About the Library that is Not Really Just a Library

In 1903, Henry Huntington bought a large and active farm in San Marino. After his death it became the Huntington Library, a real institution in Los Angeles. This is a rare combination of a wonderful library, a charming art museum, a stunning furniture collection and great botanical gardens.

The library contains, among other things, a fascinating collection of ancient books, rare translations, manuscripts, special editions and antiques, which every book lover will enjoy seeing.

There are books from different periods - from the Middle Ages through 19th century literature. They are divided into three sections - astronomy books, physics books, and in a common hall - books of biology and medicine, some of them filled with charming illustrations, as was popular in the second half of the 20th century.

The museum features works by European artists from the 18th and 19th centuries and a plethora of American art from the 17th century to modern American art. There is also a scientific display of ideas that changed the world and more.

The furniture shown here is from the rich and diverse collection of furniture by Charles and Henry Green. Apart from the furniture you can see here, are chandeliers, lamps, carpets and more.

In the museum's famous botanical gardens you can enjoy a charming range of over 14,000 trees and a variety of wonderful plants and flowers and landscaped gardens.
