A Medieval Library

5 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 3 3/4"
 
A spectacular cherry wood bookcase in the medieval style with painted black trim and antique brass panels on the sides. The case has a slanted reading ledge and contains sixteen (blank) books in various binding styles and decoration. The books are bound in cream, red, and brown leather (one is bound in snakeskin and one in black and gold Japanese paper) with brass labels and bosses. Most of the larger books are fastened with black chain to the brass rod above the bookcase, and the smaller books are not. The copy of Beowulf is fixed open.

You can shelve the books with the spines facing inward (historically correct) or outward (better looking).
