I checked his library shelves in secret soon after our return from Emona, but the book and papers had already vanished from their high place; I had no idea where he’d put them.
Я тайком проверила ту полку в библиотеке — почти сразу после возвращения из Эмоны, — но книга и бумаги успели исчезнуть, и я не представляла, куда он их переставил.

In order to test her theory as to his occupation, she brought from her room one day a painting that she had bought at a sale, and set it against the shelves behind the bread counter.

The books that Agnes and I had read together, were on their shelves; and the desk where I had laboured at my lessons, many a night, stood yet at the same old corner of the table.
На тех же самых полках лежали книги, которые мы читали вместе с Агнес; там же, где и раньше, неподалеку от стола, стояла моя конторка, за которой я готовил уроки.

None of the furniture was in the right place, the few paintings I had were skewed, and the books on the shelves were in a pathetically different order.
Вся мебель была передвинута, немногочисленные картины на стенах перекособочены, а на книжные полки вообще без слез не взглянешь: книги стояли как попало.

Just the old room smelling of polished mahogany and oiled leather in the Morris chair, and hooks sitting stiff on the shelves.
В старом доме пахнет полированнным красным деревом, истёртыми кожаными подушками дедовского кресла, книгами, теснящимися на полках.

On three sides there were floor-to-ceiling shelves, completely filled with books, most leather bound, many very old.
Три из четырех стен были заняты книжными полками, сплошь заставленными книгами: большинство – в кожаном переплете и многие – очень старые.

If you have shelves above your desk, it should be possible to reach the items on the lowest one without standing up.
Если над вашим столом оборудованы полки, они должны располагаться таким образом, чтобы вы могли дотянуться до вещи находящейся на нижней полке, не поднимаясь со стула.

If you opened the double doors at the front of the box, you saw a set of slanting shelves, rather like a blind, stained black like the case—and that was all.
Спереди были двустворчатые дверцы, которые открывались, а за ними вы видели конструкцию из черного дерева, напоминающую жалюзи и состоящую из косых планок. Вот и все.

The shelves were well stocked with packages and cans, all of them looking perfectly familiar from a distance, though at close quarters their proprietary labels were blurred and unreadable.
Полки холодильника были забиты банками и коробками; все этикетки показались хорошо знакомыми, но, приглядевшись поближе, он убедился, что и тут надписи смазаны и прочесть их невозможно.

In Jim’s cramped study, Henry Rouvroy put down the hand grenade, looked over the books on the shelves, and removed the volume of his brother’s haiku.
В тесном кабинете Джима Генри Роврой положил ручную гранату на стол, оглядел книги на полках, достал тоненький сборник хайку брата.

They were, in several places, dismantled of their shelves, and otherwise broken and damaged, and were, moreover, mantled with cobwebs and covered with dust.
Кое-где полки были вынуты, шкафы поломаны и повреждены и к тому же обвиты паутиной и покрыты пылью.

The dim room was indeed tiny, and hushed, too, set far back from the voices of tourists below. August volumes crowded the shelves, their bindings caramel colored and brittle as old bone.
Темная комнатушка в самом деле оказалась крохотной, тесной и молчаливой. Здесь не слышны были голоса туристов, а углы древних переплетов торчали с полок, как осколки окаменевших костей.

Complex ecosystems flourish in neritic pools and flatlands, sliding on organic scree to the edge of rock shelves and dropping into a zone below light.
Сложные экосистемы процветают в неритовых водах и на равнинах, соскальзывая по органическим осыпям к кромкам скалистых шельфов и дальше - туда, куда не достигает свет.
