I supposed these initials can used any way but I always think the main initial is in the center? This is a little treasure to hold your special smaller books; eight inches long but expands to ten inches. One side is a little stiff but I don't have the expertise to fiddle with it. The monogram could be ivory, yellowed with time. Again I don't mess with these old pieces. I believe it is Victorian English oak as it matches some furniture I have from the same period, and it has a wonderful patina. THE BOOKS ARE NOT INCLUDED, SORRY
