This is a Barrister book case. I currently have 3 matching antique bookcases that look somewhat like this one. I like mine better!
Anyway, I grew up in a family that loved to read. My Father owned thousands of books.. thousands! In our house, sometimes there was no need for me to go to the public library because the information I was looking for was in this collection of books.. So - now you understand why having a small library in my own home is very important to me. So important, I want it to be the room that is directly to the right after you walk through the front door.I love this picture because if you enlarge it, you will see to the left that this owner also has Barrister book cases!
