Lot 0138 Details

Description
This lot features an antique 40 drawer Library Bureau Sole Makers library card cabinet ca. 1925. The Library Bureau was a business founded by Melville Dewey in 1876 to provide supplies and equipment to libraries. The Library Bureau quickly became a one-stop vendor for supplies and equipment a library might need. By 1900, its lengthy, well illustrated catalog was widely distributed. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Library Bureau supplied furniture, equipment, supplies, and services to many of the new Carnegie Libraries being built. The Bureau prospered. It opened a number of large factories to provide furniture and supplies. It sold merchandise and services through a network of sales offices and distributors in the United States, England, France and Belgium. In Boston, its headquarters operated from offices located successively at Hawley Street, Franklin Street, and Atlantic Avenue. In the 1890s, the Library Bureau introduced vertical filing. It soon became a large supplier of filing equipment, supplies, and expertise to business and government. Library Bureau schools in major cities taught filing to clerical workers. It opened a large factory in 1909 in a brick building at 224 Albany Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts; by 1925, there were 450 workers here. In 1918, the adjacent building, 230 Albany Street, became its headquarters. By 1922, the Library Bureau had factories in Cambridge, Ilion, New York, Chicago, New York, and London. Constructed of lovely Tiger Oak with a stacking design. Measures 36" w x 17.5" d x 53" h. This piece comes from the Haynes Estate of Knoxville, Tn. See Photos for Details. Shipping will need to be coordinated by the buyer.
