Bookshelf Spawn Command

The Bookshelf item can be spawned in Minecraft with the below command. Cheats must be enabled before this will work.

If you are running the Essentials plugin, you will need to run /minecraft:give instead of simply /give. This is because the Essentials /give command overrides Minecraft's built-in command.

Bookshelf Information

Bookshelf

Bookshelves can be crafted by placing 3 books in the vertical middle slots of the crafting table, and wooden blocks of any colour in the remaining 6 slots. When placed around enchantment tables, they increase the maximum level of enchantment the table can provide. They can also be used as a fuel in furnaces, although this isn't recommended as it isn't the most efficient fuel.. unless you hate libraries!
