Faux Book] "Ledger" Metal Dummy Book Box, with mechanical device to open (a concealed button on spine that snaps open the storage box)
- N.d., circa late 19th century. 25.5 by 16.5 cm. Heavy, since it is made of metal, weighing 3 lb, 11 ou. With gilt patina on edges. On the shelf, a very convincing simulacrum of a book, and quite unique with its mechanism to spring the box open vertically (from above), to reveal a drawer. Wear to the spine, but this is in keeping with how one would expect to find an actual ledger book of this vintage. Quarter Morocco, Marbled Boards, Metal Box underneath [Attributes: Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: White Fox Rare Books, ABAA/ILAB]
