Libraries of Early America

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

This group's members include those Legacy Library subjects who spent all or part of their lives in America and collected primarily before 1825. Their books have been carefully cataloged using printed bibliographies, library catalogs, and extant copies where available.

Submit libraries for addition, please use this wiki page, or just email jeremy@librarything.com.

For the conventions used in the cataloging of these collections, see the Editorial Guidelines page.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Do you know of additional collections which could be included here? Do you know of extant copies of books from any of these libraries? Please contact Libraries of Early America coordinator Jeremy Dibbell (jeremy@librarything.com)
