Ebonised, wall hanging bookcase in the Aesthetic manner designed to hold a set of
"The Temple Shakespeare". (NB: 39 of a set of 40.)
The four book sections are separated by three bass relief bronze panels depicting fairy figures accompanied by the quotations:
“Born to Speak All Mirth” (Much Ado about Nothing);
“Let Times News be Known” (The Winter's Tale) and
“Misery's Love, O Come to Me” (King John).
The designs have been attributed to the Victorian sculptor Esther Mary Moore.

Esther Mary Moore (1857 - 1934?).
Born in Burnley, Lancashire, England in 1857, Esther began exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1890 and thereafter showed widely until circa 1920. She was considered for inclusion in the 1908 Franco-British exhibition by the Royal Society of British Sculptors.
