Radcliffe Camera

The Radcliffe Camera (Camera, meaning "room" in Latin) is a building of Oxford University, designed by James Gibbs in neo-classical style and built in 17371749 to house the Radcliffe Science Library.
The Library's construction and maintenance was funded from the estate of John Radcliffe, a notable doctor, who left £40,000 upon his death in 1714. According to the terms of his will, construction only began in 1737, although the intervening period saw the complex purchase of the site. The exterior was complete in 1747 and the interior finished by 1748, although the Library's opening was delayed until 13 April 1749.
It serves as a reading room for the Bodleian Library next door.
