The first Globe-Wernicke book case was produced in 1899 by the Globe-wernicke company. However the US started producing them for the military during the second world war with Germany. In the 1960s the company went in to administration and no longer produces any bookcases any more in europe and is part of a conglomerate in the US.

Globe-Wernicke made bookcases starting in 1899. They invented the rearrangeable bookcase, a bookcase that came in sections and could be set up in different heights and patterns.
