In 1936, this stylish and useful bookcase was designed and patented by Mr William Beveridge Robertson in Great Britain. Designed to fold flat, it comprises of a set ecliptical ends which slot into a plinth. The plinth is slightly reclined making it easier to view the book spines – ideal for travelling.
The “collapsible portable book rest” found favour with the Educational Book Company (EBCO), a subsidiary of Amalgamated Press, who supplied it for many years with their 10 volume set of Arthur Mee’s Children’s Encyclopaedia.
