The cabinet of curiosities has a long history. Furniture expert John Bly of the Antiques Road Show said that the modern sense of a political cabinet of ministers came from the closeness of friends that you would allow to see what you’d collected in your cabinet, a few hundred years ago.

That’s odd, I used to have a cabinet full of ministers in the basement.

But seriously, this is nice. I’d like to build something like it, but I could never bring myself to saw so many books in halve. Even really crappy ones.

OTOH they just encouraged you to build yourself a cabinet to hide your curiosities from them.
