There was little idle conversation; no doubt the Guild was attempting to instill single-mindedness in these students.

Passepartout's journal

Alexandria is a location in 80 Days.

The key tourist attraction is the famed "Library of Alexandria", which has been rebuilt by the Artificers' Guild since the fire that destroyed the original library in ancient times. The new library has become a hive of Artificer experimentation and invention. Whilst visiting the library, Passepartout can meet an artificer using an experimental projector to see images of the past.
