Secretary Bookcases, Secretaires

Secretaire bookcases in the British style of Hepplewhite.

¶ Have the same general use as the former article (Bookcase Units with Desks); they differ in not being sloped in front. The accommodations therefore for writing are produced by the face of the upper drawer falling down by means of a spring and quadrant, which produces the same usefulness as the flap to a desk. To one design are drawers, the other has doors, within which are sliding shelves for clothes, etc., like a wardrobe.
