This bookcase was not part of Soane's collection. One of pair with XF144. It was made for A. T. Bolton (Curator 1917 to 1945) for the Architectural Library he created in the North and South Drawing Rooms in c.1920. The bookcase was specially made to fit around the chimneypiece and is in two sections. In 2015 this bookcase was moved from the North Drawing Room when that room was returned to its 1837 arrangement.
