Wedge Shaped Book[edit | edit source]
The shape of this book prevented it from sitting properly on the shelf. The box's fore edge flap prevents the book from slipping while the box is closed.
Multi-Part Object[edit | edit source]
This volume was accompanied by a set of horn books that are housed in a folder built into the bottom of the phase box.
