Well, today happens to be Earth Day and it’s also my birthday. Oh joy. I’m getting older… Anyway, today we’re visiting a fairly old treasure on the west coast of the United States. It’s Hearst Castle’s Gothic Study in San Simeon, California.
Hearst Castle was built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst in 1919, and the castle is now considered a National and California Historical Landmark. Of course, we’re interested in books and Hearst Castle’s Gothic Study has a magnificent collection of rare texts. Hearst’s private libraries reside on the castle’s third floor. The Gothic Study was where Hearst worked in a cathedral-like atmosphere.
