PAIR OF GLOBE WERNICKE CASES BOOK A SOLID PRICE AT GARTH’S
COLUMBUS, OHIO –
Say you’re a rare book collector with a burgeoning pile of choice tomes. Why wouldn’t you want to protect your investment in the Cadillac of bookcases? To wit, two Globe Wernicke four-section bookcases that left Garth’s gallery following its Eclectic Auction on February 7. Selling for more than triple their high estimate at $2,500, the American case pieces from the first quarter of the Twentieth Century were of Southern gum and featured leaded glass doors, cap and base with drawer, each standing 58 inches high by 33½ inches wide and 12½ inches deep.
