HE system which we are now introducing, is somewhat different from our Adjustable BookShelving, already so well known, the principal features being, that each shelf is Absolutely Adjustable and the space occupied between divisions is brought to a minimum, so that the shelving may be said to be continuous from one end of stack to the other. The shelves can be adjusted and additional shelves added at any point of the Standard, without the removal or disturbing of books already in position. Although this system. throughout is constructed of Iron and Steel, wood shelves are frequently preferred; they occupy no more space and are less expensive than steel. Either Wood or Steel shelving may be used, as desired. In comparing the cost of our systems, with wooden cases, it will be found favorable when durability, light, space, and increase of shelving capacity is considered. Special designs with estimates involving the use of our Stikeman Patents, will be furnished on application.
