Note: Several design elements on this bookcase are closely related to known case pieces from the workshop of Daniel Pabst. The finely rendered "coin" stiles are similar to examples from Pabst's Renaissance Revival work including those on a sideboard and parlor cabinet, both conserved by the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The incised and stippled panels on this bookcase resemble panels on pieces within Pabst's Modern Gothic oeuvre related to the work of English designer Christopher Dresser. Pabst examples with similar carving include a bedroom suite in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and an armchair from a private collection illustrated inThe Art that is Lifeby Wendy Kaplan.

Note: Beginning in 1874, Indianapolis cabinetmaker William Wooten began manufacturing these innovative desks with civil servants in mind. However, bankers, lawyers, and captains of industry soon found them indispensable. Boasting 110 compartments, they came in four grades: ordinary, standard, extra, and superior. Used by dignitaries such as Smithsonian Director Spencer Baird, philanthropist Joseph Pulitzer, and railroad magnate Jay Gould, many established 19th century furniture dealers praised the desks, including London dealers Richards Terry and Co., who noted, “Nothing in its line can exceed it in usefulness or beauty, and purchasers everywhere express themselves delighted with its manifold conveniences.”
