Rare Books Galore at the William Andrews Clark Library

Literary geeks, this one's for you. Allow the Obscura Society LA and field agent Robert Hemedes to tempt you with a two-hour long private tour of the William Andrews Clark library—an awe-inspiring arsenal of over 100,000 rare books and manuscripts, all housed within a jungle of lavish walls, originally built in 1924. Unparalleled in its collection of English literature (dating back nearly half a millenium), the archives contain classic texts from William Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde. Behold the vintage wonders during this docent-lead tour for $20 a piece. Nab your tickets here.

This is NOT in Hancock Park. Los Angeles Times Mapping LA shows this as Jefferson Park (Jeff Park as the neighborhood calls it) or West Adams as many do, but it is definitely NOT in Hancock Park!
