Those lamenting the loss of Birmingham's Brutalist Central Library can pick up a slice of its history for £500 a go.
Large oak desks, at which generations of Brummie students and academics pored over books and documents, have popped up on auction site eBay after being cleared from the old library during 2014.
The desks were designed by celebrated architect John Madin, alongside many of the bookcases and furniture, to fit in with his world famous library when it opened in 1974.
Six of the robust desks are now on sale but the buyer must be prepared to pick them up from Lewes, in East Sussex.
With demolition work on the Central Library now under way, these desks are among a few remaining relics of the controversial building.
eBay seller Rowan H said: "The desks were removed from Birmingham Central Library last year by myself. I had a contact who was in charge of clearing the library prior to demolition."
He said that staff told him the furniture was designed by Madin specifically for the library and he later confirmed this through online research.
"All the bookshelves and desks and general furniture were finished in the same oak veneer and linoleum throughout the library. They are unique to the library," he said.
The larger desks, which include overhead lights finished in aluminium, are approximately six ft by five ft while a pair of slightly smaller desks are five ft by five ft.
A spokeswoman for the Library of Birmingham said that attempts were made to reuse furniture and fittings from the old library in other council buildings and libraries wherever possible but the desks were too heavy for re-use.
"The council engaged a furniture clearance firm to clear unwanted and unsuitable items from the Central Library after the move to the new Library of Birmingham," she said.
"This was to ensure that items were, as far as possible, either recycled or reused rather than destroyed, in line with the sustainability aims of the Library of Birmingham project and also to minimise ongoing insurance costs at the old building.
"The firm chosen have a good track record in clearances of this kind and in disposing of items responsibly. These desks were included in the items cleared by the firm engaged."
Campaigners who battled unsuccessfully to save the library from closure held a wake on Saturday to mark the demolition.
But there was some good news for admirers of the late architect's work when his St James's House, in Frederick Road, Edgbaston, was recently granted a Grade II listing from English Heritage.
