Aha. I believe I may have solved it. Current theory: each lamp corresponds to the word written above it, with the unmarked one being the queen. The lamps need to match the colors of the needed pieces, with on representing a white piece and off representing a black piece. The pieces needed are a black bishop, a white queen, a white knight and a black rook (as determined by the book titles). So the edge lamps should be off, and the center ones should be on.

My theory is that after the lamps are set like this, the chest will open to reveal the necessary pieces. The pieces can then be placed on the chessboard. The number coordinate is the shelf the book relating to them was found on, and the letter coordinate is first letter of the author's surname. So the bishop goes on F1, knight goes on C8, queen goes on G3 and rook goes on C5. Positioning the pieces like this should open the door.

It took embarrassingly long to come up with this. Ah, well, now for me to turn out to be completely wrong.

the correct solution to the puzzle is a twinned, repeating, split ray disintegrate cast on the far wall.

Sadly they're not epic level or they could intensify that too. Double max damage is nice, though I guess against objects the damage doesn't actually matter.
