Largest Book in the World

Is bigger better?  The Guardian has published, for the first time ever, a picture of the world's biggest book - the Klencke Atlas, presented to Charles II on his restoration and now 350 years old, on display at the British Library.  The Atlas is 1.75 metres (5ft) tall and 1.9 metres (6ft) wide and takes 6 people to lift it. Try reading that on a Kindle...
