A bookcase, or bookshelf, is a piece of furniture that is almost always with horizontal shelves, and is used to store books for the most part. Bookcases are used and can be seen in private homes, public and university libraries, offices and bookstores. In some cases, a bookcase may be fitted with glass doors. A bookcase consists of a unit including two or more shelves which may not all be used to contain books or other printed materials. Bookcases can range from small, low models the height of a table to high models reaching up to ceiling height. Shelves may be fixed or adjustable to different positions in the case depending on the taste and preference of the owner.
When books were written by hand and were not produced in great quantities, they were kept in small boxes or chests which owners usually carry with them. As manuscript volumes accumulated in religious houses or in homes of the wealthy, they were stored on shelves or in cupboards. These cupboards are the direct predecessors of today's bookcases. Later the doors were discarded, and the evolution of the bookcase proceeded.
