Mudie’s Library

Mudie's Library .—While on the subject of books, we may remind the visitor that the most remarkable lending library  in the world is situated in London.  Mudie's , at the corner of New Oxford Street and Museum Street, affords a striking example of what the energy of one man can accomplish.  At this vast establishment the volumes are reckoned by hundreds of thousands; and the circulation of them, on easy terms, extends to every part of the kingdom.  The chief portion of the building is a lofty central gallery, of considerable beauty.
