The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker's Director.

By Thomas Chippendale


Plate LX, LXI, LXII.

Are three Library Book-Cases of different sorts, with their dimentions and mouldings all fixed to the designs. If you have occasion to alter their sizes, it would be well to keep as nigh the fame proportion as posible; otherwise the upper doors may have but an ill appearance. It would be needless to say any thing more about them, as their forms are fo easy.

Those Book-cases are all intended for glass doors.

Plate LXXI.

Plate LXXI is a neat Gothic Library Book-Case, with a frofile and scale. This book-case, made by an ingenious workman, will have the difired effect.

Plate LXXV.

Plate LXXV is a rich Gothic Library Book-Case, with Gothic columns fix'd upon the doors, to open with them; the doors are different, but may be made alike if required. This design is perhaps one of the best of its kind, and would give me great pleasure to see it executed, as I doubt not of its making an exceeding genteel and grand appearance; the upper doors are to be glazed.
