Library Book Wheel

So cool…  This clever 300 year old Library Book Wheel enabled researchers to have ready access to seven open books at once while they worked. The function of this interesting historical object was very much like today’s browser tabs. It’s located at Biblioteca Palafoxiana in Puebla, Mexico.
