Originated in England and were designed for the use of barristers. This book shelf became popular because of its unique stackable design. Barristers had many law books and it was a problem if they had to move to new rooms or places. A portable bookcase was designed for your needs. In original Barrister bookcases, there are several glass-fronted separate shelf units that can be stacked to form a cabinet. When a barrister changed chambers, each rack could be moved separately without removing its contents.
