Library Book Sign
Ebonised wooden sign with inlaid lettering for ‘Class “B” Books’.
Class B books are, according to the Library of Congress Classification system, those relating to Philosophy, Religion and Psychology.
This sign would have been above the shelving for such books in a large public or university library. Now a lovely decorative piece. Possibly American, c. early 20th century.
