This is a 18th century bookwheel that let readers read 8 books at once

  1. To clarify; it was more for administrative staff who had multiple journals and ledgers to keep and update frequently. Not for someone to just be reading 8 books etc. Really cool old piece for sure.

  2. I saw some type of contraption like this in a church or mosque. It was so large print books could be viewed. Maybe there were hymnals. Gosh I wish if somebody knows more about this you would fill me in because it’s bugging the heck out of me now
