In the 19th century books were becoming increasingly easy to acquire and more and more homes could afford to have larger collections. The revolving bookcase is a bookcase that uses a “pivot and post” design. This design was invented and patented by John Danner of Canton, OH around 1876. Mr. Danner’s design allowed the reader to quickly view and select a book from a large number of books in a small space.
