A by-play entirely out of order and

Macey Book Cabinets are the first sectional bookcases ever
built after the designs of the old masters. These old masters,
Sheraton, Chippendale, Robert Adam and fra Junipero, wera
as great in Furniture as Shakeipeare in Literature, as Mozart in
Music, as Michael Angelo in Painting. '
i The new Macey Book Cabinets are the only sectional book,
cases that can be added to, both upward and sideways, and still '
not look like sectional bookcases, but like he'rlooms of furniture.
Con be taken from or rearranged without de-iroying their beauty
and style. r;'.''j!"".' ,.
So artful is the cabinet work that dealers frequently have to
take them apart to convince customers that they are sectional.
Macey old master designs harmonize with any furniture yott '
now have, and are made in such variety of popular prices, sizea,
woods and finishes, that they fit any requirement of space orpurse.
Macey Sectional Book Cabinets are built under the direction
of Mr. O. H. L. Wernicke, the father of sectional bookcases and
President of The Macey Company. Mr. Wernicke's name is
still used in the corporate title of competing firm, with which
he has long since had no connection, ,..!r.i f!Kf.tfS '
