... The library is an amazing place. Built with a donation from a family whose son graduated in 1907 and died 1912, (who amongst my faithful readers can guess how he died?), it is the world's largest private collection, with book stacks that total 52 miles in length.

America. It also gets called Beantown, which I suspect has to do with Boston
