Antique Bookcases

During the 18th & 19th centuries a formal education was incredibly expensive and beyond the reach of the vast majority of the populace. Books were similarly expensive, as was the cases to store them. For this reason the antique bookcase, or bibliotheque in France, is not common at all.
