Old Books & Things..
a rare survivor - military campaign furniture - a folding bookcase late Georgian dating from c1830’s - The kind of bookcase officers would have travelled with and set up once at camp.. this one belonged to a former governor of Malta Maj. Gen. Sir Frederick Cavendish Ponsonby - who fought in many notable battles including Waterloo
if only this bookcase could tell of it’s former owner - stories of a world of war 175 years ago
deceptively large looking it measures just 17” in height and 8” in width when closed - small enough to travel.
