What style of house is your Victorian? always looking for subjects,
can't resist it

Thanks for your suggestions. There is an excellent book which has
lots of data/illustrations of interior detailing of that era (though
not specifically bookcases--lots of trims and moldings etc).

ISBN 0-9691019-5-3

it's a catalogue-type repro book from that era, but the detailing
is exact enough to allow one to recreate the illustrations.
Highly recommended for anyone who owns houses of that period.

There are also a few books out that show old photos of interiors
of Victorians, but can't remember titles off-hand. Will post
them in future if they come to mind.
