Although they’re very familiar and popular today books haven’t always existed and neither have bookcases! Even when there is fierce competition from fay’s digital readers, the simple book is holding its own and continues to be bought across the globe for relaxation, education and more. Even though those living thousands of years ago didn’t have access to books, they still had precious documents they wanted to preserve, so we could say that a type of bookcase has existed for a very long time.
During the life of a Roman philosopher Seneca who was born in 4 BC a kind of cabinet started to become popular in the region, as people become more interested in the teachings of Seneca and looked for a suitable place to store scrolls. This was despite the fact that literacy was quite low at this time, and homeowners may have been unable to read - but domestic libraries were fast becoming the norm.
Likewise, in China hundreds of years later valuable were texts were also housed in specially-made furniture, some of which revolved. In Europe bookcases were not really required that much until printing presses were launched in the 15th Century that were designed so many publications could be created in a shorter space of time. Instead of storing books in cupboards featuring doors, it was easier to place them in a more ‘open’ piece of furniture where texts could be easily admired and accessed.
