Product Description

This bookcase is an exact replica of man-of-eight prows that sliced through the rippling waters of the inland Thames river during the late 19th century. It’s never seen action, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at it.

When retiring a boat, fraternities would cut these quick, narrow racers into sections to serve as bookcases. These shelves have lined the halls and bars of fraternities all over the world.

  • Historically accurate late 19th-century replica
  • Rowing symbolizes teamwork, efficiency, and strength — a strong mind in a strong body
  • Hand-built wood planks on frame
  • Distressed French finish
  • Over 7 feet tall
