PREFACE 

FIFTY years ago Josiah Quincy published an ex- 
haustive history of The Boston Athenaeum. Since 
that time no volume has appeared to chronicle later 
events. Frequent calls for information in regard to 
history and tradition, funds, gifts, and other pertinent 
facts, together with the need of a new list of Proprietors, 
Jed the Trustees in 1906 to authorize the Librarian to 
prepare a Centenary Volume which should satisfy this 
need, and at the same time serve to commemorate the 
completion of one hundred years. 

Those who are familiar with Athenaeum history and 
affairs will miss many portraits which they would have 
liked to see in this volume : the faces of Joseph S. 
Buckminster, Nathaniel Bowditch, Thomas Wren Ward, 
Edward Wigglesworth, William H. Prescott, Henry B. 
Rogers, George Livermore, Edward N. Perkins, Charles 
Eliot Norton, Charles E. Ware, Robert W. Hooper, 
Francis E. Parker, J. Elliot Cabot, Francis Parkman, 
Francis B. Crowninshield, George W. Wales, Charles 
R. Lowell, Lemuel Shaw, Charles Deane, Edward J. 
Lowell, Charles A. Cummings, and others. But when 
the final selection was made it seemed difficult to go 
beyond Presidents of the Trustees, Librarians, and 



viii PREFACE 

the chief Benefactors of the institution, except by admit- 
ting more portraits than would be possible without far 
exceeding the sum set aside for the publication of the 
volume. 

No portrait of John Bromfield has been discovered, 
and this must be a lasting cause for regret to every reader 
who has seen Mr. Bromfield's name within the covers 
of Athenaeum books. The portrait of Miss Hannah 
Adams, from the original in the Trustees' Room, is, as 
Emerson might have said, 

"Its own excuse for being." 

In many cases statements here will be found to differ 
from those in other books. It would be too much to 
say that these are never errors ; but by a careful study 
of manuscript sources many corrections have been made. 
To illustrate : Daniel Webster subscribed to the fund to 
purchase Washington's library, and his name has always 
appeared in the list of contributors, although he never 
made payment. Joseph Coolidge, who subscribed and 
did pay, has never before received recognition in the 
list. 

The view of Scollay's Buildings is reproduced by 
permission of F. E. Belcher, Esq., and that of the Amory 
house by permission of Edward W. McGlenen, Esq. 
To several others acknowledgments are due for aid or 
for helpful suggestions, and especially to Mr. Charles 
N. Baxter, who has contributed much to the accuracy 
of the volume.

THE INFLUENCE OF THE ATHEN^UM 
ON LITERATURE IN AMERICA

THE INFLUENCE OF THE ATHENiEUM 
ON LITERATURE IN AMERICA 

By BARRETT WENDELL 

The influence of the Boston Athenaeum is a fact not so 
much in history as in the memories, and in the lives 
of those who have had the happy fortune to know and 
to feel it. At least hereabouts — and they still pleas- 
antly pretend that true Bostonians regard the universe 
as radiating from the newly gilded dome of the State 
House — there has never been anything else quite 
like this truly social library, now grown to its hun- 
dredth year. It is in no sense a private place, yet it has 
qualities of privacy as fine as those of houses where the 
very fact of your reception is in itself a subtle pleasure. 
It is not a public place, where the whole world may 
jostle you until you wonder whether in some better 
world than this you may find yourself, if you are good 
here, among angels without elbows ; yet it has the 
impersonal generosity of such publicity as makes your 
presence in its halls and alcoves a cordial matter of 
course. It is not a haunt of solemn scholarship, dedi- 
cated to the almost religious pursuit of learning, as if 



4 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

in erudition lay salvation ; yet it is no mere play-room, 
where you go to free yourself from the benumbing 
habit of responsible duties. If one may phrase its 
whole quality at all, it is the one place in our old capital 
city of New England where those who seek what they 
may find in the humanity of books have most surely 
found the same throughout years which have lengthened 
into a full century. 

Memory, after all, is the true custodian of such a fact 
as this. There must be many of us now who knew 
these pleasant, cool rooms when we were children. 
There must be many who remember how we used to 
climb the vanished Sumner staircase, and look into the 
big reading-room, where silent figures were seated at 
tables, with mysterious alcoves about them, containing 
tiers of books which made the books at home — however 
numerous in themselves — seem like a mere handful. 
There must be not a few who can recall the higher 
ascent still which brought us to the first picture-gallery 
in all our experience — a vague, splendid expanse of 
color and imagination. Its grandest images, to be sure, 
were no more masterly than that colossally unsteady King 
Lear, more melodramatic with his upturned gaze than 
he ever ranted on any stage; or than the distorted 
harmonies of Allston's " Belshazzar's Feast " ; or than 
what Dean Briggs once playfully called the austerely 
sheepish face of Stuart's "Washington." Yet the Louvre 
itself, or the Uffizi, or the Prado never revealed to us 
again quite so vast a sense of how fine art can open our 



INFLUENCE OF THE ATHENiEUM 5 

way to unconditioned aspirations of the spirit. The 
Athenaeum has never taught us to be critical ; yet it 
has never suffered us to be smugly content. There is 
ineffable charm in the outlook from its quiet windows, 
on the old burying-ground where the Boston generation 
which Copley painted lies secure. Their gray stones — 
particularly in the warmth of summer when the grass 
springs about them and the trees grow rich with shade — 
bring us fantastic intimations that this world of ours 
springs from a root deep in ancestral New England soil. 
And we turn from this assurance of our fellowship 
with our fathers to the persistent voices of elder ages and 
of younger, whispering from the friendly array of books 
here within our very reach. 

That instant intimacy with literature is what the 
Athenaeum has come to mean to us above all things 
else. In other libraries you may find greater wealth of 
learning, and far more completeness of special authority ; 
but this is the only one hereabouts where you may 
stray at will, and lay your hand on any volume, on 
any shelf, just as you may in your own house or in 
the house of a trusty friend. In every other such 
treasury of letters you find inevitably that you are not 
free to roam, but must avail yourself of the service of 
some licensed guide. Here, for once, the whole para- 
phernalia of catalogues and of skilled and kind attend- 
ants — who grow to be your friends — are not obstacles 
in your way, but only helps, to whom you may turn if 
you find yourself at fault. Unless you seek them, you 



6 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

need never be reminded that they are here. If you seek, 
you shall find with a certainty beyond the general hope 
of this perplexing earth. 

So, yielding to the reverie which carries you so 
swiftly from childhood to the verge of age, you can 
hardly fail to realize that these hospitable rooms, them- 
selves rich now with the associations of more than fifty 
years, are the sanctuary, beyond all others, where the 
lovers of books in our New England have found their 
happiness with the most unerring certainty. Quite to 
understand what this environment means, one must have 
known its gentle charm for oneself But each of us, like 
the elder folk who knew all this in days now fading into 
shadow, can hardly feel sure that such sentiments are 
more than chance associations, making precious to our- 
selves relics in which others can discern only vacuity. 
To reach assurance we must go beyond our own 
dreams and fancies, searching and exploring record of 
what these regions truly were in old times. 

By a happy chance, such a record exists in the 
archives of the Athenaeum. For a great many years 
the simple custom of the library was to write down in 
a book just who took volumes away to read, and 
how long he kept them. No trace remains of what 
pages these men and women turned in the pleasant 
seclusion of the library ; but by inspecting these 
brief records of what they carried home, we can form 
some notion of what they sought and found in the 
cordial surroundings where the friendly inspiration 



INFLUENCE OF THE ATHENAEUM 7 

of letters so surely lingers. It is a still more happy- 
chance that when the records were most fully kept 
Boston was at what now seems to have been its best, 
awakened from the wholesome provincialism of its 
stout origin, and not yet thrust into the renewed pro- 
vincialism of its comparative isolation. In these old 
pages you will find names remembered still, not only 
hereabouts, but across the continent, too, and across 
the seas. Not one of them, either, but is of ancestral 
New England race ; and when these men and women 
flourished, New England was most nearly great. 

They naturally fall into two groups. One consists of 
those who came to the Athenseum just as most of us 
come to-day — not as to a laboratory or a workshop, but 
as to a refuge where one may confidently consort for a 
little while with the full humanity of the present and the 
past. The other consists of those whose labors, chiefly 
of a literary kind, were helped to fruition by such gen- 
erous access to learning as the Athenaeum has always 
aflforded. To feel with certainty what the influence of 
the Athenaeum has been, we cannot do better than glance 
at these groups in turn, noting some of the more familiar 
names in each. 

The record of Hawthorne's occasional visits to the 
reading-room is familiar to those who care for his work 
enough to delight in that most individual phase of it, his 
"Note-Books." For nearly thirty years, Rufus Choate 
found here plenteous food for that voracious reading by 
means of which he kept his wits alert and alive amid 



8 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

the most busy legal practice of his time. He read the 
classics, Greek and Latin ; poetry unstintingly ; sound 
fiction and essays, English and French ; Goethe, too ; and 
he seems to have delighted in the bound volumes 
of Punch. George Barrell Emerson, whose teaching 
stamped with distinction the minds of a whole generation 
of New England women, and whose writings are still 
authoritative concerning our native trees, read here not 
only his botany, but all manner of things besides — 
delighting most, one would gather, in standard literature. 
Edward Everett came here sometimes, though his own 
library, like George Ticknor's, was so large that he had 
little pressing need of books not actually in his pos- 
session; those which he is recorded as using are 
mostly classics, ancient and modern. His brother-in- 
law, the Rev. Dr. Frothingham, in the same years, 
read all manner of literature here, with eager catholicity 
of taste. Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe was a great reader, 
too; but at least in our Athenaeum records he seems 
to have been more severe in purpose, taking out vol- 
ume after volume on Philosophy and Science, on His- 
tory and Political Economy, on Education, Physiology, 
Hygiene, the Mind, and the Brain. Dr. Parsons, the 
translator of Dante, showed insatiable appetite for 
fiction and biography. President Quincy is recorded 
as incessantly exploring literature ; Calderon, Mrs. 
Opie, Milton, Voltaire, Cervantes, Fielding, Byron, 
occur in his page, almost side by side. And in six 
years Daniel Webster found leisure to borrow from 




v\J , 6vvNjtA.>i/0vu 



INFLUENCE OF THE ATHENAEUM 9 

the Athenasum six books — Sophocles, the Fables of 
La Fontaine, a volume of Parliamentary History, an- 
other of the History of Greece, Sparks' edition of 
the Works of Franklin, and the Diable Boiteux of 
Le Sage. 

The other group, of those who used the Athenasum 
rather as workers than as readers, instantly reveals that 
the Athenaeum, in its older days, was a real contributory 
force to the enduring literature of New England. This 
is perhaps most evident in the matter of history. The 
record of George Bancroft is considerable, and consists 
almost wholly of works concerning history, biography, 
and voyages of discovery. So does that of Dr. John 
Gorham Palfrey, who made considerable exploration of 
statistics as well. The books used by Francis Park- 
man generally had direct bearing on the life work which 
makes his memory as heroic as it is delightful. The 
same is true of those used a few years before by the 
earliest of our memorable New England historians, 
William Hickling Prescott. Jared Sparks came here 
sometimes for historical books. So, for general litera- 
ture, did George Ticknor, in spite of his own rich col- 
lection, so close at hand. And Dr. Alexander Young 
used here the kind of books which made him so 
memorable an editor of our early New England 
records. 

It was at the Athenaeum, too, that some of our more 
speculative writers sought solid basis for their variously 
enduring flights of speculation. Bronson Alcott used 



10 THE BOSTON ATHENiEUM 

the library frequently. So did William Ellery Chan- 
ning, whose range of serious reading seems to have 
been exceptionally wide. James Freeman Clarke read 
here omnivorously. The record of books drawn by 
Emerson is unusually large and heterogeneous. And 
George Ripley seems to have found here no small part 
of that fervid intellectual stimulus which made him, 
in his younger days, so powerful a force in the philo- 
sophic renaissance once expected to remake creation on 
the Boston plan. 

When we come, furthermore, to that less definite 
kind of literary activity conveniently called culture, the 
records are not lacking. George Hillard came here 
sometimes. Edwin Whipple came often. Charles 
Sumner sought here some of that widely various read- 
ing on which the more amiable phase of his restless mem- 
ory is based. And Dr. Holmes, who began as a grave 
reader of works on medicine ended as a riotously general 
reader of everything which could possibly interest his 
humanely assimilative mind ; his record, indeed, makes 
one half believe that without the Athenaeum we might 
never have had, in its full luxuriance, that wonderful 
Autocrat of the Breakfast Table. 

We might go on indefinitely. Hannah Adams, the 
first of the thousands now lying in Mount Auburn, 
was the first woman admitted to the use of our literary 
treasures. Lydia Maria Child read here sometimes; and 
so did Elizabeth Peabody. Sometimes President Felton 
came; and Richard HiLdreth used the library; and so 



INFLUENCE OF THE ATHEN^UM ii 

did that most accomplished of New England gentlemen, 
the last vividly remembered bearer of the historic name 
of Edmund Quincy. 

Local enough all this may seem to any one dis- 
posed to smile at our Boston traditions. And even 
those of us who remain provincial enough to imagine 
these traditions important might shrewdly question the 
authority of such records as we have cursorily glanced at, 
and summarized. The fact that people signed their 
names for books need not mean that they ever actually 
read them. Nor does the fact that somebody has read 
a good many volumes in any given place imply that 
he has not read more elsewhere. Yet it is hard to 
believe our memoranda insignificant. 

It is a real truth that the Boston of the mid-nine- 
teenth century, whatever the positive value of its thought 
and expression, was the most memorable centre of intel- 
lectual activity yet developed in English speaking 
America. It is a real truth that the names we have 
hastily repeated were among those which helped make 
Boston memorable. It is a real truth that, in the Boston 
of their time the Athenaeum was already such a centre 
of humane influence as we who know it to-day know it 
still to be. It is a real truth that, time and again, they 
visited it as a shrine of learning, confident that here they 
should find awaiting them something of what they sought. 
It is a real truth that each and all of them were happily 
and never ignobly productive. And thus considering 
them, we may grow to feel that our sentimental love for 



12 THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

the Athenaeum has a double consecration. It is not only 
consecrated by our reverent acknowledgment of all it has 
done for ourselves ; it is consecrated more deeply still 
by our growing and enduring conviction that just such 
significance, in elder time, made it a force for righteous- 
ness and for inspiration amid that generation to which 
we point, and to which our children shall point, if any 
one dare to question whether our pride in New England 
be justified.

THE FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF 
ATHENiEUM HISTORY 

By the librarian 

I 

The intellectual life of the nineteenth century in Boston 
grew out of a love for books that can be traced back to 
colonial days. The Governor and Company of the 
Massachusetts Bay in 1629 accepted from Mr. William 
Backhouse eight books " to be sent for New England," 
and also approved for purchase several titles selected by 
the Rev. Samuel Skelton. But this library, if it ever 
reached America, had as little influence in Boston as 
did the more famous collections of William Brewster at 
Plymouth and of the Rev. John Harvard at Charlestown. 
The earlier demand for new publications was satisfied 
through private enterprise, and many booksellers had 
established quarters near the Town House before the 
end of the seventeenth century. Nearly thirty are 
known to have flourished there, offering their importa- 
tions as well as works from the local presses. Literary 
activity before the year 1700 became so great that 
printers in Boston and Cambridge were forced to turn 



i6 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

away orders, and New England authors had to send 
some of their manuscripts to England to be put in 
type. These conditions were peculiar to Boston, for in 
17 19 Daniel Neal, a traveller, stated that all around the 
Exchange were booksellers' shops, while in New York 
there was but one, and " in the Plantations of Virginia, 
Maryland, Carolina, Barbadoes, and the Islands none 
whatever." 

Bookstores, however, are not libraries of reference. 
The need of such a library was early felt, and Captain 
Robert Keayne, in his will dated in 1653, attempted 
to meet the demand by making provision for a " Library 
& Gallere for Devines & Schollers to meete in." To 
it he bequeathed his sermons, or expositions of the 
Bible, and such of his books, "whether Divinitie, 
Hystory or Milletary," as his appointed friends might 
choose, " not simply for show but properly for use, they 
being all English, none Lattine or Greeke; . . . and 
though my bookes be not many, nor very fitt for such 
a worke being English & smale bookes, yet after this 
beginning the Lord may stirr up some others that will 
add more to them & helpe to carry the worke on by 
bookes of more valew, antiquity, use and esteem e." 
In this quaint language Captain Keayne set forth his 
desire for a library in the town of Boston, and it was to 
be not for show but for use. 

In March, 1656-7, a committee was appointed to 
consider the model of a Town House, and in 1658 the 
building was completed with the help of subscriptions 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 17 

from one hundred and four citizens; it occupied the 
site of the present Old State House. There is little 
reason to question the existence of a library in the 
building soon after 1658, although it was doubtless 
small and for a few years not very important. In 
1673-4 John Oxenbridge, calling himself "a sorry 
man, less than the least of all the mercies and ser- 
vants of Christ," left several theological books, Euclid's 
geometry, and a catalogue of the Oxford Library "to 
the publick Library in Boston." ^ 

The Town House was destroyed by fire October 2, 
171 1, and Judge Sewall in a letter some months later 
states that "in our Boston Library several valuable 
Books were lost, as the Polyglott Bible, the London 
Criticks, Thuanus's History, a Manuscript in two FoHos 
left by Capt. Keyn the Founder ; &c." 

Some books doubtless were saved and formed part 
of a new library in the brick Town House which rose 
on the same site the next year, since the treasurer of 
Boston asked in June, 1713, that all books belonging 
to the Town Library be returned to the New Town 
House.^ 

In 1733, Colonel Thomas Fitch headed a subscrip- 

* Samuel Mather's " Testimony from the Scripture against Idolatry & Su- 
perstition " bears at the bottom of the title-page " fFor the publike Library at 
Boston 1674." If the book was printed as early as 1674, about which 
there is some doubt, this is the only book of this early Boston library that 
is known to have come down to us. — See Massachusetts Historical Society 
Collections, iv. , volume 8, pages 12, 23.

tion to procure books for the Town Library, and £^o 
was raised for the purpose. There the books must 
have been when the building was burnt December 9, 
1747, since a number of " ancient books " are said to 
have been destroyed at that time. 

This first library in Boston is of considerable interest 
historically, having existed for nearly a century. Al- 
though very unpretentious it was widely known, and 
the Rev. John Sharpe of New York, appreciating its 
value and still greater possibilities of usefulness, referred 
to it in 17 13 when he suggested for his own town a 
library to be open every day and to all men.^ 

Meanwhile the King's Chapel Library of some 
two hundred theological works had been sent over 
by command of King William III in 1698; it was 
a welcome mark along the pathway to culture in 
Boston, and still remains, being the oldest library in 
New England. It has survived fire and war, and 
now rests in the custody of the Athenaeum. 

Four generations, and perhaps five, of the Mather 
family were collectors of books. In the Life of Increase 
Mather the author speaks of a fire in 1676 which de- 
stroyed Mather's house, " but by the Gracious Provi-

Deceased Husband." In 1686 we have a picture of 
the collection from the pen of Dunton the bookseller : 
"I may say, That Mr. [Cotton] Mather's Library is 
the Glory of New-England, if not of all America. I 
am sure it was the best sight that I had in Boston." 
Part of this collection found its way into the American 
Antiquarian Society's library at Worcester ; and part of 
the Mather library of the Revolutionary period (esti- 
mated at over 7000 volumes in all) is said to have 
been burned at Charlestown during the battle of Bun- 
ker Hill. 

Thomas Prince, famous locally as minister of the 
Old South Church until his death in 1758, began upon 
entering Harvard College July 6, 1703, to collect books, 
pamphlets, maps, and manuscripts "either published in 
New England or pertaining to its History & Public 
affairs." When Prince entered upon his pastoral duties 
in Boston in 17 18 he deposited the books which he 
then called The New-England- Library "in the steeple 
chamber in the old South Church," supposed to have 
been his study ; at the same time he began to collect 
works of use to clergymen. 

In 1726 Prince had attempted to raise funds for 
a lending library, which Judge Samuel Sewall called 
an "inconvenient schem." He was, however, just a 
generation ahead of his time, for subscription libraries, 
organized by a group of persons and known as Social 
libraries, came into prominence between 1760 and 1765. 
A considerable interest was manifested throughout New

England, but in Boston no such project took permanent 
form. The field was left to the King's Chapel, Prince 
and Mather collections, and also to private enterprises 
such as commercial circulating libraries. From the 
time of Mein's first venture in 1765 these circulating 
libraries form a slender thread leading through the 
revolutionary years up to the opening of the nine- 
teenth century. 

John Mein, an Edinburgh bookseller, arrived in 
Boston in October, 1764. Having brought with him a 
quantity of books, linens, etc., he opened a store with 
Robert Sandeman, nephew of the famous preacher, and 
advertised many wares including English and Scotch 
Prayer-Books as well as Edinburgh beer and porter by 
the cask or dozen. Mein soon dissolved his partner- 
ship with Sandeman and in 1765 opened a bookstore 
and circulating library in King (now State) Street, " at 
the London Book-store, Second Door above the Brit- 
ish Coflfee-House." 

In 1765 Mein advertised a catalogue of his twelve 
hundred books "in most branches of polite literature, 
arts and sciences." In an address to the public Mr. 
Mein stated that a number of gentlemen had encouraged 
the venture which, " tho' fraught with amusement, has 
been hitherto unattempted in New England." It 
would "amuse the man of leisure " and " insinuate 
knowledge and instruction under the veil of entertain- 
ment to the Fair Sex." Here was certainly an attempt 
to improve the intellectual life of the town. 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 21 

The ambitious proprietor increased his business by 
starting The Boston Chronicle in 1767 and by printing 
several books ; but he opposed the plan to boycott 
goods subject to stamp duties, and in his newspaper 
upheld the colonial policy of the British government. 
This so irritated the public that in October, 1769, he 
was mobbed. In defending himself he shot a grena- 
dier and so thought it best to seek safety on a ship in 
the harbor. A few days later he sailed for Great Britain, 
where he soon made himself known to Lord Dartmouth 
and communicated his views of affairs in America. 

In May, 1784, Wilham Martin advertised in the 
Independent Chronicle that a " Library of Bibles and 
other Books" could be found at his shop near Seven- 
Star Lane, Main street; and among his business con- 
temporaries were Benjamin Guild, William P. Blake 
and William Pelham, all well known in their day. 

The founding of the American Academy of Arts 
and Sciences in 1780 and of the Massachusetts His- 
torical Society in 179 1 were both significant events in 
the awakening of Boston after the close of the Revolu- 
tion. The Boston Library Society, organized in 1792,^ 
is more nearly akin to the Athenaeum in organization 
and aims. Like the Athenaeum, also, it has for over a 
century withstood war and panic and the desire for con- 
solidation, happily pursuing its quiet and prosperous 
course. Associated with these literary societies were 
Caleb Gannett, the Rev. Jeremy Belknap, the Rev, 

1 See Samuel 8. Shaw's Historical Sketch, published in 1895. 



22 THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

Joseph McKean, Redford Webster, the Rev. John Eliot, 
Caleb Bingham, the Rev. Joseph Eckley, and others. 

At this time the intellectual interest of the commu- 
nity found expression along many lines. Literary, pro- 
fessional, and scientific clubs were founded, some with 
periodical reading-rooms and others with collections of 
books for their members, and lecture courses grew in 
favor. It was in this environment that the men who 
founded the Boston Athenaeum were bred. 



II 

In 1801 Phineas Adams, son of a farmer in Lex- 
ington, graduated at Harvard. He was a shy, diffident 
lad, whose poverty had forced him early to seek em- 
ployment in a paper-mill. Mrs. Hannah Foster, author 
of "The Coquette" and other popular novels, became his 
patron, prepared him for college and encouraged him to 
write. 

In 1803 Adams persuaded Edward Lincoln, a Water 
Street bookseller, to undertake with him a magazine 
which he was to edit under the name of "Sylvanus 
Per-se." In the first or November number of the 
Monthly Anthology ; or Magazine of Polite Literature, 
Adams promised essays " On Manners and Liter- 
ature, on the Improvement of Taste, and the En- 
couragement of Genius." His trenchant words " to 
Correspondents " — possibly imaginary ones — did not 
tend to encourage literary contributors, and through 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 23 

lack of manuscripts or funds or both, the project soon 
languished. Adams withdrew after the April number, 
1804, and Munroe and Francis of Court Street took 
over the publication, having secured the Rev. William 
Emerson as editor. 

The magazine became broader and more vigorous 
with the seventh or May number. Mr. Emerson en- 
listed several learned men in its support, Dr. Benjamin 
Waterhouse, the Rev. John Eliot, the Rev. John 
Sylvester John Gardiner, the Rev. Joseph Tuckerman, 
Peter Oxenbridge Thacher, Winthrop Sargent, among 
others ; and the editorial notes came to have a pleasant, 
friendly tone that suggests communications to members 
of a club rather than to subscribers. In 1805 these co- 
workers formed a society and its constitution was signed 
on the third of October. The members of this society 
for about six years met regularly to conduct the 
Monthly Anthology and Boston Review as it was now 
called. " Its labors," said Quincy, " may be con- 
sidered as a true revival of polite learning in this 
country, after that decay and neglect, which resulted 
from the distractions of the Revolutionary War, and as 
forming an epoch in the intellectual history of the 
United States." 

The Boston Athenaeum had its origin in the Anthol- 
ogy Society. At a meeting in Franklin Place, October 
23, 1805, it was voted "on motion of Mr. Emerson, 
seconded by Mr. Shaw, that a Library of periodical 
publications be instituted for the use of the Society." 



24 THE BOSTON ATHENiEUM 

In May the project was again urged by Mr. Shaw, who 
prepared a prospectus bearing the title " Proposal for 
the establishing of a Reading-Room in Boston, to be 
called The Anthology Reading-Room." The room was 
to be open from nine to nine and the dues were fixed at 
ten dollars. 

An eight page circular,* dated January i, 1807, 
heralded the new enterprise, stating that it already had 
one hundred and sixty subscribers, rooms in Joy's 
Buildings,^ Congress Street, and several hundred books 
received from the Society or acquired by gift and pur- 
chase. It was to be an institution " similar to that of the 
Athenaeum and Lyceum of Liverpool in Great Britain." 
The final plan permitted the rooms to be open from eight 
in the morning until nine at night; but no books or 
papers could be taken out. Newspapers from Virginia, 
Kentucky, South Carolina and nearer states were to be 
on file, with English and French reviews and periodicals. 

In October, 1806, the Anthology Society had trans- 
ferred the Library to five trustees, William Emerson, 
John Thornton Kirkland, Peter Oxenbridge Thacher, 
William Smith Shaw, and Arthur Maynard Walter. 
The Library was incorporated as the Boston Athenaeum 
on February 13, 1807, and the corporation organized

April 7th. One hundred and fifty shares at ^300 
each were authorized to provide adequate funds, and 
the Library was established in the early spring of 1807 
in Scollay's Buildings, Tremont Street, now the site of 
Scollay Square. The Library in the new rooms grew 
rapidly, both by purchase of books and by frequent 
gifts. In October, 1807, the Athenaeum received from 
a number of citizens who had associated themselves to- 
gether under the title of " The gentlemen adventurers 
in Bowyer's historic lottery " a set of Hume's History 
of England, and these handsome folio volumes may still 
be seen upon the shelves. The "gentlemen adven- 
turers" were: Stephen Higginson, James Lloyd, Jun',

kins, Thomas L. Winthrop, John Prince, Jun*", Daniel 
Sargent, Joseph Lee, Jun"", Thomas Lee, Jun"", Thomas

judgment. At this time Shaw wrote : " Th^, Establish- 
ment of the Athenaeum ... is one of .tbffi griatest 
strides toward intellectual advancement that^thi^ cjduhtry 
has ever witnessed." '.'.*., 

Nor should its wide field be forgotten. A parp.phlet 



26 THE BOSTON ATHENiEUM 

published in May, 1807, named the objects of the 
Athenaeum : a Reading-Room, a Library, a Museum, 
and a Laboratory/ The last object had been provided 
in September when Mr. Godon, writing in regard to a 
series of lectures on chemistry, stated that the Athe- 
naeum would no doubt provide him with apparatus on 
easy terms.^ 

In 1809 the proprietors felt the need of an entire 
house to ensure quiet and to provide ample space ; 
the residence of Rufus G. Amory, Esq., north of the 
King's Chapel Burying Ground was purchased ; it was 
built of wood, rough cast, and had been the home of 
Dr. Caner, the loyalist rector. The Athenaeum used 
three rooms, one for periodicals and newspapers, one 
for the library, and the third for a collection of books 
lent by John Quincy Adams. 

Mr. Shaw's published memorials show how busy a 
lifejhe; l^d.in these rooms. Almost daily there were 
letters '.td!be written to learned friends in this country 
and-aerosS- the sea, asking aid, advice, and books. Many 
wrote to him about the founding of the Athenaeum, and 
whe.h;iTi New England they visited him. He referred 
to the- Lifcf;?ry as the institution "I most cherish and 
love/' ■ Through the dark period of the war of 1 8 1 2 he 
kept it' atiye, and was so active that people called him 
"Adrifctiaeiim", Shaw." After years of devotion his ser- 
vices 'a? tiitw-arian closed January 23, 1823. In 1824

1826 he passed away, having given the best of his life 
without pay, and a considerable property, to the Boston 
Athenaeum. 

Mr. Shaw kept in a blank-book during 1 821-1822 
a record of the duties which the janitor performed from 
day to day. It is a delightful compound of rules, pre- 
cepts and soliloquies. Under i. those duties " not to 
be omitted " are given entire, and under ii. those " to be 
performed as opportunities may offer " are printed in 
part: 

i. 

" Every morning — Sweep the News-rooms, dust the tables, 
chairs, &c. and the Library-room. After breakfast clean the 
Lamps, & Lamp-room ; see that all the books are in their 
places and even with the shelves. 

Monday & Thursday mornings sweep the Library-room & 
clean everything thoroughly ; put clean sand into the spitboxes, 
and paper and pens into the desks. 

Saturdays sweep the first alcove and stairs. Clean the stoves 
and hearth every other Monday. 

Every day clean some of the Books and wax them. 

A place for everything & everything in its place. 

ii. 

A box of SnufF is wanted. 

If we could have a Binder in the house it would be a great 
advantage. 

The books in the 12th room are very much exposed, as 
every person can have the key & boys & girls spend hours in 
the room. Should not this be stopped & no person allowed to 
enter but with a proprietor ? 



2S THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

I should think that a labil should be pasted in all our Books 
if for no other reason than to distinguish them from those 
deposited, etc., etc." 

The Athenaeum began early to pluck the fruits of 
other movements. The apparatus of the Society for 
Cultivating Philosophical Knowledge was purchased in 
1807. The American Academy of Arts and Sciences 
deposited its books with the Athenaeum in 18 17, and 
the collections remained under one roof most of the 
time until the year 1899. In 1823 the Library of 
King's Chapel and the Theological Library were turned 
over to the Athenaeum ; the Boston Medical Library 
followed in 1826, and the Massachusetts Scientific As- 
sociation's Library the same year. Thus, in a single 
generation the Library had absorbed several well-known 
collections of books in Boston. 

For the surprising hold which the Athenaeum had 
upon the affections of Boston people at this time much 
was due to the presidents of the period, John Lowell 
(1816-1819) and Josiah Quincy (1820-1829). They 
saw very clearly the need of a building, and with their 
advocacy the subject grew in importance. Fortunately 
James Perkins, Esq., offered to give to the Athenaeum 
his mansion house ; it was situated in Pearl Street, then 
an old time thoroughfare, beautified by stately houses 
and shade trees. The Library, which exceeded twelve 
thousand volumes, was moved in June, 1822, from 
Tremont Street to Pearl Street. The books were for 
the first time divided into classes, and then into minor 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 29 

divisions ; each division was assigned to a bookcase. 
A room was devoted to casts and other works of art, 
including a portrait of Mr. Perkins by Gilbert Stuart. 
Stuart himself was made a life member " as a testi- 
mony of respect for his eminent ta/ents." New by-laws 
were put in force, and the dues of annual subscribers, 
which had been advanced to |i2 and then to $18 a 
year, fell back in 1823 to ^10. 

Through these years John Lowell was devoting his 
best energies to obtain a lecture hall in connection with 
the Athenaeum. Subscriptions could not be raised suf- 
ficient to meet the entire cost of the proposed addition, 
and as there was to be a deficit with the completion 
of the building the proprietors could not agree upon 
the policy to be pursued. 

The plans called for a lecture hall and an academy 
of fine arts, with quarters for other societies. The 
scheme to unite "in the Athenaeum the principal circu- 
lating libraries of the city " aroused new fears in the 
minds of many proprietors, who in this period of 
library centralization had not the faith to believe that 
the Athenseum was fulfilling its destiny in literary 
Boston. At a meeting held in 1826 the more opti- 
mistic party prevailed ; the proprietors voted to begin 
the lecture hall, and chose a building committee with 
Thomas H. Perkins as chairman. At this critical time 
the Perkins family, — Thomas H. Perkins the brother, 
and James, the son of the first benefactor, — offered to 
the trustees, on certain conditions, sixteen thousand dol- 



30 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

lars, a considerable sum as measured by the standards 
of that day, and greater still if measured by its value to 
the struggling institution. In 1821 one hundred new 
shares were authorized, and now in 1826 fifty more 
were authorized and sold, bringing the total number of 
shares to three hundred. Thus, through generous gifts 
and money received from the sale of shares, lectures and 
art exhibitions were made possible. 

A step forward was taken in December, when pro- 
prietors were allowed, on payment of five dollars* 
annually, to take out books, three volumes at one time; 
these might be kept a month. On written request for 
a book the Librarian was to hold it one day for the per- 
son requesting it. The delivery of books was between 
12 M. and 2 p. M. daily, Sundays excepted.^ The 
library itself was open at eight in the morning except in 
June, July, and August, when its treasures were acces- 
sible as early as six. The Athenseum at this time was 
supported and cherished by an influential body of pro- 
prietors. That it did not satisfy the intellectual hunger 
of all the citizens is evident from the following notice 
in the Boston News-Letter and City Record for Feb- 
ruary 25, 1826 : 

"What literary advantages have the mass of our citizens de- 
rived from the Athenaeum? Who gets a peep within its lofty 
walls without a ten-dollar bill ? And what genius owes its ex- 
pansion to the liberal facilities of the Boston Athenaeum ? 

1 This fee was maintained in the face of vigorous opposition later on. 
* Quincy's History, page xo8. 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 31 

" When the poor are favored with admission to study the 
neatly fitted up shelves of books which adorn the Athenaeum, 
we shall be convinced of the necessity as well as worth of it, 
and not before. Things are becoming quite royal in our vener- 
able old city : money buys a ticket for the wealthy to read the 
Hebrew language, while the industrious, worthy portion of the 
community, may intellectually starve upon a six-penny al- 
manack." ^ 

The next progressive step was to benefit a wider con- 
stituency, although it hardly can be said to have come 
in response to the above notice. A gallery of casts had 
been opened in the new building in December, 1826. 
But Boston had steadily grown in importance as an art 
centre, and art exhibitions were much desired. To test 
the public interest a loan exhibition was opened May 
10, 1827, under the management of the Athenseum. It 
was composed almost entirely of pictures lent by private 
owners, but so good was the attendance that in two 
months the gross receipts amounted to $4,000.^^ A 
young Harvard graduate in a letter dated June 3, 1827, 
bears witness to its immediate success : 

''The famous exhibition of pictures at the Athenaeum is now 
all the go, and it is, I think, well worth visiting. Besides many 
pieces of the Old Masters, as they are called by the amateurs 
and virtuosos, there are several portraits of living persons, which 
attract no inconsiderable attention. Miss Marshall is not there. 
But the celebrated Miss Howe, whose picture Miss Stewart 
painted as that of the Boston Beauty, and the two daughters of 

1 Boston Neivs-Letter, i8a6 (v. i), page ii6.

32 THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

the Russian Consul (whose name horribile dictu I never pro- 
nounce and shall not attempt to write), are there." ^ 

The " old masters " were almost entirely of the Dutch 
school. Lawrence's Benjamin West copied by Leslie, 
which now hangs in the Reading-Room, graced this first 
exhibit;ion, and there were portraits of Washington and 
Adams by Stuart, and a miniature of George Canning, 
lent by Daniel Webster. 

The Art Gallery of the Athenaeum soon becam.e very 
popular, as the following notice of the second exhibi- 
tion which was printed in the Columbian Centinel for 
May 24, 1828, attests: 

"Athenjeum Gallery. All the world, as they say in 
France, was at the Gallery yesterday ; and good judges pro- 
nounce the exhibition, in many respects superior to that of last 
year. The pictures from the Jefferson Collection are much 
admired ; and great credit is given Mr. 'Jones for the excellent 
arrangement of the whole Gallery." 

The Trustees soon began to collect works of art for 
the Gallery, and the names of West, Trumbull, Sully, 
Allston, Stuart, Panini, and Harding appear in early cat- 
alogues. The portraits of George and Martha Wash- 
ington by Stuart, known as the " unfinished portraits," 
were purchased in 1831 from the artist's family for 
1 1,500, an absurdly small sum it now seems for these 
invalulable pictures.'^ The works of Crawford, Green-

tion at the Museum of Fine Arts. 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 33 

ough, Clevenger, Powers, Ball, Frazee, and other sculp- 
tors, were acquired from time to time for the " Sculpture 
Gallery." At the Athenaeum Audubon's engravings of 
birds were first seen by the public ; and here also many 
American works of art first became known, some to 
grow in fame, others to pass into utter oblivion. To 
record the names of generous donors of these years 
would be beyond our space; but the Library correspond- 
ence shows how wide was the influence of the Gallery.* 

Ghosts claim an important place in the history of 
any ancient library. The Athenaeum ghost made its 
appearance in 1842 and was vouched for by Nathaniel 
Hawthorne, then a young bachelor who frequented the 
Reading-Room. His experience one April day was 
described long after under the title " The Ghost of 
Doctor Harris ; " it was reprinted in the Living Age, 
February 10, 1900. From the tale I take a few sen- 
tences to describe the " Doctor," who was Thaddeus 
Mason Harris, a well-known clergyman. 

" That very evening a friend said to me : ' Did you hear 
that old Doctor Harris is dead ? ' 

" ' No,' said I, very quietly, * and it cannot be true j for I saw 
him at the Athenaeum to-day.* 

" ' You must be mistaken,' rejoined my friend. * He is cer- 

* Quincy's History, page 120. This Gallery (in Pearl Street) occupied 
a room in the third floor fifty by sixty feet, and twenty feet high. Below 
this story there was a lecture room capable of holding five hundred people. 
On the ground floor were rooms for scientific lectures and for learned 
societies. Emerson and many other famous men came to the Athenaeum 
building to give lectures.

tainly dead ! ' and confirmed the fact with such special circum- 
stances that I could no longer doubt it. 

" The next day as I ascended the steps of the Athenaeum, I 
remember thinking within myself, ' Well, I shall never see old 
Doctor Harris again!' With this thought in my mind, as I 
opened the door of the reading-room, I glanced towards the 
spot and chair where Doctor Harris usually sat, and there, to 
my astonishment, sat the gray, infirm figure of the deceased 
Doctor, reading the newspaper as was his wont ! His own 
death must have been recorded, that very morning, in that very 
Jiewspaper ! ' 

"I remember — once, at least, and I know not but oftener — 
a sad, wistful, disappointed gaze, which the ghost fixed upon 
me from beneath his spectacles ; a melancholy look of help- 
lessness, which, if my heart had not been as hard as a paving- 
stone, I could hardly have withstood. But I did withstand 
it; and I think I saw him no more after this last appealing 
look. . . ." 

Mr. Edward C. Guild in his "Letters, 1832-1899" 
shows that the boys of his day feared no apparitions 
lurking in the dark alcoves. 

" The Library," he writes, " was not so much used 
then as now. Old Mr. Bass was Librarian, and at 
one time a young English boy, Fisher Keeler, was 
employed there, with whom some of us who fre- 
quented the Library formed an alliance, and we used 
to play marbles with him on the floor of the long 
alcoves, where we were rarely interrupted by any older 
person.'* 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 35

The Library in forty years had increased until it 
contained about 37,000 volumes; the shelves were 
very much crowded, and the rooms afforded inade- 
quate space. Pearl Street was surrendering to the 
inroad of commerce, and a site for the Athenaeum more 
central, and at the same time quiet, became imperative. 
Permission to sell the Perkins house was obtained and 
the Trustees decided to move to a plot of land fronting 
on Tremont Street, and running back to Court Square. 
The money for a new building was to be raised by 
disposing of the Perkins house and other property, by 
subscriptions, and by the sale of new shares. Two 
hundred and thirty-eight shares were issued in 1844 
and 1845, the land was secured, and plans were drawn 
by George M. Dexter for a library, art, and office build- 
ing. Later, sentiment developed against offices, and 
the Trustees were instructed to sell the land on Tre- 
mont Street and to purchase the Phillips estate on Bea- 
con Street with an outlook on the Granary Burying 
Ground. 

Three designs were submitted in March, 1846, for a 
building on the new site. The one by Edward C. 
Cabot was accepted; Messrs. Dexter and Cabot, the 
two architects, then joined forces for three years, and 
prepared working drawings. It was found necessary 
to obtain permission from the city to carry part of 
the rear wall on an arch above several ancient grave- 



36 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

stones, so that the southern fa9ade might avoid an 
awkward indentation due to the irregular boundary 
line. 

The corner-stone of the new Athenaerum was laid 
April 27, 1847. The accepted design represented a 
building one hundred and fourteen feet long, sixty feet 
high, and, with the exception of a grass plot in front, 
extending from Beacon Street to the Granary Burying 
Ground. The fa9ade was built of Paterson freestone, 
which was hard in texture. The interior of the build- 
ing was designed in the alcove style, then customary in 
university libraries. The cost exceeded the original 
estimate of $59,000 about three times; this estimate, it 
should be said, was not made by Mr. Cabot ; but the 
excess occasioned some discord and resulted in a 
further issue of shares. The building proved, however, 
to be one of the most dignified in Boston, and at once 
increased the influence of the library. Entering the 
vestibule the room at the left on Beacon Street was 
occupied, until 1899, ^7 ^^® American Academy; at 
the right rose the imposing "Sumner staircase," torn 
out in 1889; back of these and looking upon the 
Granary was a Reading-Room at the right, and beyond 
this was " the long room," called the Sculpture Gallery, 
now a Periodical Reading-Room. The second floor 
was occupied as now by the main Reading-Room, and 
the third floor was used as a Picture Gallery.*

FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 37 

The library of nearly fifty thousand books was moved 
to Beacon Street in July, 1 849. 

Charles Folsom consented a year or two earlier to 
accept the office of librarian ; it was at a time when the 
position began to call for ability while by custom the 
compensation was still meagre. Mr. Folsom was a 
scholar, a kindly, helpful man, whose chief service as 
Librarian at Harvard had been to broaden and liberalize 
the administration. He felt that there was work to be 
done at the Athenaeum, and in a letter to Samuel A. 
Eliot he expressed his views freely : 

'* The office of custodian has, so far as I know, always been 
satisfactorily performed at the Athenaeum. Not so, I believe, 
the other branch of a librarian's duty. By dispensings I am 
far from meaning only the finding of the particular volumes 
asked for, or the recording of the titles of such as are borrowed. 
I mean quite another ability in the librarian, — an ability to 
* bring forth, out of the treasure * committed to him, ' things 
new and old.' " 

Mr. Folsom advocated a policy more liberal toward 
Bostonians, not shareholders, than some proprietors 
might approve ; but his attitude toward strangers has 
the true ring : " Let the far-ofF student in the Valley of 
the Mississippi, who is vainly hammering at some liter- 
ary task for want of books, and ignorant perhaps as to 
the existence of the best books on his subject, understand 
that, when he comes North in the summer, if he will 
present himself at the Boston Athenaeum or Harvard 
University he may chance to clear off a year's docket of 



38 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

doubts in a single day." At this period there was no 
public library in Boston, and the attitude of the Athe- 
nseum toward scholars was of importance. 

A new and larger building would have lost half its 
value had the power to purchase books been diminished. 
The year 1846 was, therefore, memorable for the gift 
of 125,000 from John Bromfield, a wealthy merchant, 
for a permanent fund, the income in part to be spent 
for books, and in part to be added to the principal. 
This gift has yielded 1194,269 for the purchase of books, 
and the fund now amounts to $106,426.^ 

If the new rooms lacked " atmosphere " they were 
not long in gaining associations through the presence of 
famous men. Nathaniel Hawthorne, in his " Passages 
from American Note-Books " (Boston : 1868, volume 2, 
page 151), under the date May 5, 1850, writes : — 

" Yesterday I went to the Athenaeum, and, being received 
with great courtesy by Mr. Folsom, was shown all over the 
edifice from the very bottom to the very top, whence I looked 
out over Boston. It is an admirable point of view ; but, it be- 
ing an overcast and misty day, I did not get the full advantage 
of it. The library is in a noble hall, and looks splendidly with 
its vista of alcoves. The most remarkable sight, however, was 
Mr. Hildreth, vi^riting his history of the United States. He 
sits at a table, at the entrance of one of the alcoves, with his 
books and papers before him, as quiet and absorbed as he would 
be in the loneliest study ; now consulting an authority, now 
penning a sentence or a paragraph, without seeming conscious 
of anything but his subject. It is very curious thus to have a 

1 No portrait of Mr. Bromfield could be found to insert here.

FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 39 

glimpse of a book in process of creation under one's eye. I 
know not how many hours he sits there; but while I saw him 
he was a pattern of diligence and unwandering thought. He 
had taken himself out of the age, and put himself, I suppose, 
into that about which he was writing. Being deaf, he finds it 
much the easier to abstract himself. Nevertheless, it is a 
miracle. He is a thin, middle-aged man, in black, with an 
intelligent face, rather sensible than scholar-like." 

In a letter dated February 27, 1851, Mr. Folsom^s 
assistant gives this picture of life at the Athenaeum : 
" With the exception of the noise of the hammers in y' 
entry, all is quiet here, and much as usual : Mr. P — 's 
feet grace the table as they were wont of old, — Admiral 
Wormeley revels in the English papers, and Dr. Eaton 
sits serene in his accustomed place." 

Scattered through books and papers are many refer- 
ences to the Gallery and the Library. The significant 
events in their early history have been artistic and lit- 
erary rather than administrative; and many pleasant 
paragraphs could be gleaned from volumes of letters and 
reminiscences. The artist, Mr. H. Winthrop Peirce, has 
spoken gratefully of the Athenaeum Gallery, for the most 
part "a black and dreary collection," but relieved from 
time to time by Millets, Corots and other inspiring 
works of art.^ He adds : " It aflfected Hawthorne 
to such a degree that in his Note-Books he speaks of 

1 In 1875 many of the paintings and works of sculpture were transferred 
to the Museum of Fine Arts, whence the less worthy have returned one by 
one, their places taken by examples of art which better satisfy a more cul- 
tivated taste. 



40 THE BOSTON ATHEN.EUM 

having made a gain in art culture when he could see that 
one oil painting was less disagreeable than another." * 

The Gallery, which was at this time probably more 
widely known and more popular than the Library itself, 
was of course open to women ; but it rarely, if ever, 
occurred to the Proprietors to ask permission for their 
wives and daughters to go to the bookshelves. The 
Athenaeum was a man's institution, jealously guarded, 
although in a few cases great pressure or conspicuous 
merit served to force the barriers. In March, 1829, 
the Trustees voted to give free use of the Library to 
Miss Hannah Adams, the historian, a relative of Presi- 
dent Adams and also of Mr. Shaw. Said Mr. Quincy : 
" One solitary female ventured to claim the freedom of 
its alcoves, and to endure the raising of the masculine 
eyebrows, provoked by the unaccustomed sight." Here 
Miss Adams passed many hours a day in study, and was 
locked in while the Librarian went to lunch. Her sweet 
face, as portrayed by Chester Harding, has since looked 
down upon several generations of Athenaeum readers. 
A few years later Miss E. P. Peabody and Mrs. Lydia 
Maria Child were given permission to visit the Athe- 
naeum. The Trustees voted in 1832 to allow Mrs. 
Child to take out books until further notice without 
paying the customary fee, and she wrote a most ap- 
preciative letter in acknowledgment of this unusual 
courtesy. In 1833 ^^^ published an "Appeal in Behalf 
of that Class of Americans called Africans," an argument 

1 Early Days of the Copley Society (Boston, 1903), page 9. 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 41 

in favor of immediate emancipation ; it was widely read, 
and rendered the author extremely unpopular among a 
certain class in Boston. Years after the period of these 
events she told how the Trustees, embarrassed by her anti- 
slavery views, withdrew the privilege previously given; 
and this story has formed an interesting paragraph in 
popular sketches of the Athenasum. If Mrs. Child's 
memory is reliable some trustee must have said or writ- 
ten that her presence was no longer desired. But the 
privilege was to last until taken away by the Board, 
and the Trustees' Records contain no rescinding vote 
during the years immediately following that in which the 
"Appeal " was issued. 

With the opening of the building on Beacon Street 
some of the Trustees advocated more liberal treat- 
ment of women, both by admitting them to the staiF 
and as readers. Mr. Folsom, however, was so opposed 
to this policy that he felt called upon to address to 
the Trustees a long protest, setting forth that the con- 
struction of the present building on Beacon Street, with 
its narrow galleries and steep staircases, was an insu- 
perable objection which should "cause a decent female 
to shrink." " Nor is it desirable," he writes, "that a 
modest young woman should have anything to do with 
the corrupter portions of the polite literature. A con- 
siderable portion of a general library should be to her a 
sealed book." Mr. Folsom concludes that the pro- 
posed concession to women " would occasion frequent 
embarrassment to modest men." 



42 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

Mrs. Harnden, the first woman employee of whom 
we have record, came in 1857 ; Miss Mary A. Bean and 
Miss Sarah E. Gill came soon after as assistants to Mr. 
Charles Russell Lowell, who was preparing the manu- 
script for the great printed catalogue. Miss Gill, a 
cousin of Henry Stevens, agent for American books for 
the British Museum, joined the Athenaeum staff in De- 
cember, 1859; she had previously been employed by 
Benjamin F. Stevens, who rented a room in the Athe- 
naeum basement. 

Mr. Folsom devoted his energy largely to developing 
the use of the books upon the shelves, while his suc- 
cessor, Mr. Poole, came much in contact with the Stevens 
brothers, and interested himself in the search for valuable 
collections of books. At about this time one third of 
George Washington's own library, left at Mount Ver- 
non, with other books collected by Judge Bushrod Wash- 
ington, were purchased by Henry Stevens and stored in 
the Merchants' Exchange building, now the Subtreasury, 
in Wall Street, New York. Daniel Coit Gilman, later 
president of Johns Hopkins University and first presi- 
dent of the Carnegie Institution, was then a lad, enjoy- 
ing his vacation ; he saw the books and oflfered to make 
a catalogue of them on cards. This catalogue was sent 
to Boston, where it interested several wealthy gentle- 
men and thus led to the purchase of the collection for 
the Athenaeum.* 

1 A Catalogue of the Washington Collection, books by and about the 
first President, was printed in 1897 in a handsome volume, prepared by 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 43 

Several other groups of books in the Athenaeum are 
worthy of special mention. The collection of books 
and newspapers printed in the South during our Civil 
War, formed by William F. Poole, is said to be the most 
extensive in the world. The great collection of rare 
American pamphlets, made by William S. Shaw during 
the early days of the Athenaeum, is unrivalled. There 
are also valuable sets of early American documents, an- 
nuals, almanacs, broadsides, as well as volumes relating 
to international law, Shakespeare, Byron, Gypsies, and 
several other subjects.* Single volumes of interest are 
the Breeches Bible, Eliot's Indian Bible, a volume from 
Edward Gibbon's library, one from the library of 
William Brewster of Plymouth, and the Memoirs of 
Walton, a highwayman, bound in his own skin. 

IV 

The Athenaeum had already absorbed many libraries 
that once served the community. It had held sway 
for half a century at the centre of an intellectual city. 
Now, for the first time, it was to face a formidable rival 
in the new Public Library, which was backed by great 
financial resources. It was in some danger of absorp- 
tion — like the fish which, living for years upon its less 
fortunate fellows, may itself be devoured at the last. 

Appleton P. C, Griffin, the well-known bibliographer of the Library of 
Congress. His notes, and those which Mr. Lane appended to titles in the 
Inventory, form a storehouse of information. An elaborate Index to the 
Catalogue, made by Mr. Franklin O. Poole, appeared in 1900.

44 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

The Boston Public Library had been slowly taking 
form since 1841. An enabling act was passed b'y the 
Legislature in 1848 and organization came in 1852. 
Several Proprietors of the Athenaeum were prominent 
in this movement, and upon its successful issue they 
advocated the absorption of the Athenaeum by its youth- 
ful rival. George Ticknor, signing himself "An Old 
Proprietor," published in the Boston Daily Advertiser^ 
March 14, 1853, an appeal for consolidation, describing 
the crises through which the Athenaeum had passed, 
saved first by Mr. Lowell and Mr. Perkins, aided in 1826 
by Dr. Bowditch, and in 1850 by John E. Thayer. The 
Athenaeum was threatened with a proposed issue of new 
shares, while the Public Library had the city's resources 
behind it and also several large gifts. Among those who 
followed Mr. Ticknor were many well-known proprietors.* 
It certainly seemed as though the Library that had out- 
lived so many others was to meet its Waterloo. 

The "venerable Mr. Quincy," as Mr. Ticknor called 
him, was asked at this time by George Livermore to 
make an attempt to save the institution, and his ring- 
ing " Appeal *' opens with no uncertain tone: — 

*'The proposition is nothing less than this, — that one of 
the oldest monuments which patriotism and public spirit, and 
the love of learning, in this country, ever raised, — which has 
been supported and enlarged, during nearly fifty years, through 
a succession of difficulties of various kinds, by the unremitted

FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 45 

labors of generous, self-sacrificing men, — should, in this palmy 
moment of individual and city prosperity, when wealth was 
never more abundant and public spirit never more active, be 
surrendered up by those to whom its founders entrusted it, and 
its property be delivered over to the care of a political body, 
annually shifting its members, and changing principles and 
policy with every turn of party or passion. Such I understand 
to be in effect the proposition ; and, in my judgment, it is un- 
just, unwise, and unprincipled. 

" Let us spurn the intimation, included in the very proposal 
of this ' Old Proprietor,' that the present proprietors of the 
Athenaeum have less energy, less fidelity, and less spirit, to 
meet the exigencies of the institution, than their predecessors. 
At a time when this institution possesses the most substantial 
and beautiful Library Building in this country, and one which 
will compare favorably with any in the world, — of a value not 
less than two hundred thousand dollars^ and wholly paid for, — a 
Library containing more x}c\z.r\ fifty thousand volumes^ — a large 
and most valuable collection of pamphlets, — books of the most 
rare, splendid, and costly character, daily augmenting by the 
liberality of its friends and benefactors, — the richest collection 
of pictures and statuary in America, — the whole property of 
the Athenaeum being in value not much less than half a 
million dollars, with the Bromfield Fund for its increase, now 
amounting to twenty-seven thousand dollars, — the institution 
wholly out of deht^ and wanting nothing but a fund adequate to 
meet the yearly occurring expenditures^ and to add to the power of 
the Bromfield Fund in the department of new hooks and periodical 
publications^ — at a time when this institution is, in truth, in a 
higher state of prosperity than it was at any one of those periods 
when our predecessors rallied to its aid, and not only supplied 
its wants, but elevated its fortunes, — at such a time, are we 
ready to abandon its fair hopes, and give ourselves up to de-

we content to put our fingers in our eyes, and whine about 
* difficulties ' ? Was not the Athenaeum founded in difficulty, — 
created with the expectation of difficulties ? Has it not met 
difficulties during fifty years and gloriously surmounted them all ? 
Let us away with such unmanly fears, and nobly resolve, ' out 
of this nettle,' difficulty, * to pluck the flower,' success.

The meeting to decide the fate of the Athenaeum 
was held March 28th; a parody, handed to Miss Eliza 
S. Quincy at the time, describes the scene : — 

On Beacon, when the sun was low. 
The young, the old, the fast, the slow. 
Were rang'd in many a solemn row. 
Throughout the Sculpture Gallery. 

President Gary reviewed the history of the institution 
while the crowd gathered. They adjourned to Freeman 
Place Chapel ; and Samuel A. Eliot moved to appoint 
a committee to report on the legality and expediency 
of selling the Library to the City. This was lost " by 
a large majority." On a motion of Hon. F. B. 
Crowninshield the Proprietors voted not to sell " because 
we believe that by so doing we should act contrary to 
the wishes and intentions of many of its founders and 
benefactors, and to the best interests of Literature and 
Science in this Community." The parody concludes : —

The vote is taken ! On ye brave ! 
The Credit of your Scholars save — 
Wave, L[ivernior]e, thy proxies wave! 
Charge on the " Old Proprietor" ! 

Ah, few shall part where many meet, 
Without a laugh at that complete 
And unequivocal defeat, 
And glorious minority ! 

The new shares, which were authorized on account 
of the large amount expended in completing the Beacon 
Street building, were taken by subscribers during 1854- 
1858, making in all 1049 shares issued. The chief 
purchasers, who became virtually benefactors, were : 
Dr. George C. Shattuck, John Amory Lowell, Nathan 
Appleton, Josiah Bradlee, George Williams Lyman, 
David Sears, Martin Brimmer, John Eliot Thayer, 
John Chipman Gray, William Sturgis, and the Execu- 
tors of Thomas H. Perkins, Samuel Appleton and 
Robert Gould Shaw, Sr. 

Mr. Poole came to the Athenaeum in 1856, from the 
Mercantile Library. There he had recently completed 
a catalogue of books. The need of a similar catalogue 
at the Athenseum was evident, and Mr. Poole's experi- 
ence led the Trustees to make a beginning. The plan, 
however, contemplated little more than a title-a-line 
list, and the work was intrusted to young and inexperi- 
enced men. The result proved not wholly satisfactory 
to Mr. Poole, and in 1862 Charles R. Lowell was given 
charge of the work. For the next eight years he 



48 THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

steadily carried on the revision, removing defects as far 
as was possible without entirely recasting the scheme. 
After Mr. Lowell's death in 1870 Charles A. Cutter, 
who succeeded Mr. Poole in 1869, revised and printed 
the monumental work in the five volumes now so 
familiarly known as the Athenaeum Catalogue. Ezra 
Abbot and other bibliographers commended the work 
highly for its analytical feature, its cross references, 
typographical excellence and bibliographical accuracy. 
In all these respects the Catalogue has stood the test 
of time, worthy of Mr. Lowell's and Mr. Cutter's 
scholarship. 

A public library, where a large part of the demand is 
for current literature, would hardly have been justified 
in such an undertaking, since the Catalogue, completed 
in 1882, included no book published after January, 
1872. In 1902 it represented less than half the library, 
and in 1903 the trustees authorized the librarian to 
have two copies cut up, the titles to be mounted on 
cards and inserted in the card catalogue of accessions, 
thus forming one complete index to all works in the 
library. 

The years that were passing brought many changes, 
due in no small measure to Mr. Cutter's active brain 
and generous spirit. He was a pioneer in library 
science, originating at the Athenaeum many devices now 
in general use. A writer in the Christian Union at this 
time commended the library and referred to the court- 
eous treatment of visitors, the absence of red-tape, and 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 49 

freedom from surveillance. Emerson and his daughter, 
Sumner and his friends, all helped to give the Athe- 
naeum its reputation. If the place was rather public for 
a proprietary library, few, if any, offered objections at 
that time. To the reporter in search of " copy " it was 
a happy hunting ground ; and a writer in the Tran- 
script for December 22, 1870, thus describes his visit to 
the Athenaeum : — 

*' Presently the librarian approached the table, bearing a 
number of large volumes, followed by Senator Sumner, who, 
sitting down, began to consult them, now and then taking 
copious notes. 

*' He had been seated but a short time, when * Tom Folio,' ^ 
the worshipper of Charles Lamb — who delights in exhuming 
from out the rubbish of old magazines and papers the stray 
writings of ' Elia,* Leigh Hunt, and other essayists, came 
bustling in. Conferring with the librarian for a moment, they 
both disappeared into one of the side rooms, from which, after 
a short absence, they emerged, laden with sundry old volumes 
which the indefatigable literary resuscitator bore away with him. 
Hardly had the latter disappeared when the Rev. Mr. Mount- 
ford, author of ' Thorpe,' and a recently published work on 
' Miracles, Past and Present,' came in. Presently the polished 
writer of * Six Months in Italy ' ^ entered, and while looking 
over a collection of new publications, was joined by E. P. 
Whipple, with whom he had hardly exchanged greetings, when 
Ralph Waldo Emerson walked in, and the literary trio had a 
pleasant undertoned chat together." 

Two names frequently come to mind in connection 
with the changes and progress in Athenaeum history 

1 Joseph E. Babson. ^ George S. Hillard. 



50 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

during the last half of the nineteenth century. In 1846 
John Amory Lowell was chosen Vice-President of the 
Board of Trustees and held the office for fourteen years, 
until he became President. During these years and 
throughout his presidency, i860 to 1876, he devoted 
his energy and his best thought to strengthening through 
financial and administrative improvements the various 
departments of the institution. 

The presidency of the elder Charles Francis Adams 
(1877-1879) was followed by that of Samuel Eliot, 
whose service in that office was the longest during the 
Athenaeum's first century. Dr. Eliot was famed for 
his command of fehcitous English, and for his ease 
and grace as a presiding officer. It was not uncom- 
mon for persons who had no interest in the annual 
business of the Proprietors to ask permission to attend 
the meetings, simply that they might listen to Dr. 
Eliot. 

The steady accession of books led to crowded 
shelves, and forced frequent consideration of plans to 
relieve the congestion. The Trustees finally determined 
in 1888 to abandon the fine " Sumner staircase," * which 

1 Senator Sumner had served on the building committee in 1 845 when 
plans for the Beacon Street building were under consideration. His great 
desire was for a spacious entrance. In a letter to his brother George he 
said : "I am anxious to secure a large, generous, hospitable vestibule, hall 
and stairway. I remember die stairs (by Bernini, I think) which lead to the 
Vatican on the right of St. Peter's. Can you send me the measurements 
of these — width, height, breadth ? They were stairs of such exquisite pro- 
portions that you seemed to be borne aloft on wings." — Pierce's Sumner, 
ii. 334. « 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 51 

occupied nearly one-fourth of the building, and to de- 
vote the space to an iron stack, to the never-ending 
sorrow of the Proprietors. " Amid all the debris of re- 
pairs," said a writer in the Advertiser, " a small lantern 
of primitive aspect is set midway on the floor of the 
newly arranged narrow entrance as a beacon to the in- 
terior. A jog of imagination can make this lantern 
figuratively recall the Athenaeum's small beginnings as 
a literary beacon to Boston." 

Mr. Cutter declined reelection as librarian early in 
1893, and in April William Coolidge Lane, who had 
been elected February 20th, came in from Harvard to 
take up the administrative work. Mr. Lane's first re- 
port chronicles many interesting changes, such as the 
refurnishing of the Catalogue Room, including new 
drawers for the catalogue, each holding a single row of 
cards. A date card in the pocket, indicating when a 
book should be returned, aided Proprietors, as did an 
express and mail service for out-of-town readers. The 
system of wood dummies for new books temporarily 
withdrawn from their proper places on the shelves facili- 
tated the tracing of current books. 

Of even more importance, although no reference to 
this phase of Mr. Lane's work appeared in print, were 
his plans for simplifying and systematizing the methods 
of work and of preserving records within the building. 
Improvement along these lines had become imperative, 
after a century's growth of the Athenaeum from a small 
reading-room. 



52 THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

Mr. Lane declined reelection in 1898, as he had been 
appointed Librarian of Harvard University, and Charles 
Knowles Bolton was chosen his successor. 

A gradual alteration of the interior arrangement of 
the Athenaeum has been made necessary by the changing 
character of the buildings in the neighborhood. There 
are now (1907) tall buildings on the north, east, and 
west sides, forcing dependence almost wholly upon the 
southern exposure for sufficient light for reading and 
study rooms. This led to the policy of developing the 
Beacon Street side of the building as a stack or place 
for the storage of books, as distinguished from the side 
facing the grave-yard, which was to be made more ser- 
viceable to readers. 

There were constant drains upon the Library income 
for repairs ; and some form of relief for the crowded 
shelves, as well as adequate protection for the Athe- 
naeum from the increasing fire menace of neighboring tall 
buildings, pressed for consideration. An opportunity 
to sell the Athenaeum property in Tremont Place upon 
advantageous terms brought before the Trustees, some- 
what unexpectedly, consideration of the future policy to 
be pursued. 

At a meeting of Proprietors in the Periodical Read- 
ing-Room on May 31, 1903, the Trustees were author- 
ized, after discussion, to sell the Tremont Place property ; 
they were also given authority to purchase land on Ar- 
lington Street or elsewhere and to erect and equip a 
suitable building. In accordance with this vote the 



FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS 53 

Trustees bought the three estates on the northerly corner 
of Arlington and Newbury Streets, and the adjacent 
estate on Newbury Street. 

On November 27th, the Proprietors held a second 
meeting at which the Trustees were authorized to sell 
or make a contract for the sale of the real estate and 
library building on Beacon Street ; but a change in the 
financial conditions made it impossible at that time to 
make an advantageous sale of the Beacon Street prop- 
erty. Meanwhile a feeling developed in favor of the 
preservation of the building which had graced the city 
for half a century. Proprietors who found the Beacon 
Street site especially convenient joined with those who 
were moved by this sentiment, and together they called 
for a reversal of the previous policy. After many con- 
ferences and some discussion the Proprietors authorized 
the Trustees to order such improvements and repairs in 
the present building as they considered advisable, and 
to make such disposition of the Arlington Street prop- 
erty, either by sale or lease, as they in their judgment 
deemed best. The land on Arlington Street was sold 
in 1906. 

Extensive repairs were made at the Athenaeum dur- 
ing the summer of 1904, and in 1905. They included 
fireproofing the northwest section of the building, an 
elevator, and a new Trustees Room. The Trustees 
Room has an architectural dignity which must com- 
mend it to Proprietors and to their friends. A cabinet, 
containing objects of general interest, stands opposite 



54 THE BOSTON ATHEN.EUM 

the fire-place. The walls of the room have been pan- 
elled simply and effectively. Below the panels there 
are shelves filled with books ; and above the panels, 
resting on the cap of the wainscoting, there are paint- 
ings, portraits of Athenaeum worthies, and busts of dis- 
tinguished literary men and statesmen. The great teak 
table, made from a single board and presented to the 
Athenaeum many years ago by Colonel Thomas H. 
Perkins, occupies the centre of the room. 

Many faces familiar to habitues of the Athenaeum are 
not represented upon the canvases within its walls : 
Mr. Spooner of the long beard, serious face and busy 
pen ; Elijah Kellogg, short and affable, who read a chap- 
ter in the Athenaeum Bible every morning before losing 
himself in the land of story books ; Mr. Ballou, the 
urbane traveller; Mr. Hawkes, who for years sat in the 
same chair at the same desk writing his magnum opus; 
David Balfour, a bachelor devoted to ameliorating the 
condition of Scottish widows; and our present Mr. 
Crockett, ever ready with recollections of Boston's earlier 
days. 

Memory treasures also the distinguishing traits of 
those whose lives have given color to the gallery of 
daily visitors. At the British Museum "Napoleon," 
with heavy boots and spurs, for many years signed call- 
slips and received his books, until an unfeeling realist 
denied him royal prerogatives and turned him away. 
Our annals should record Lowell's " Tommy No-nose," 
who holds a place in literature, and the more famous

some "King of Caramels." Nor should we forget the 
genius who conceived a monopoly of the morning news- 
papers by sitting upon two and holding one under either 
arm, while he leisurely and placidly read a fifth ; nor 
those creatures of time and habit — the gentleman who 
retired to the hall regularly at eleven a. m. to eat a pep- 
permint, and that other methodical person who appeared 
in his nankeen suit upon a fixed day each year to the 
never-ending confusion of the north wind. They were 
all devoted to the Athenaeum and their lives are a part 
of its happy traditions. 

Visitors from other cities where Athenaeums, founded 
during the lifetime of William S. Shaw, have failed to 
succeed, ask why the forerunner of them all retains its 
vigor. One might answer that it lives because, like a 
wise statesman, it serves its generation. When there 
was no art gallery it provided one. After the Museum 
of Fine Arts was founded, the Athenaeum withdrew from 
the field. So it was with law, theology, and medicine. 
When contemporary special libraries languished, the 
Athenaeum absorbed their collections. As new special 
libraries became firmly established, it again restricted its 
field. When women, as a rule, read little beyond light 
literature, it was a scholar's retreat. To-day it is a 
family library. One might add, also, that it has been 
fortunate in its body of Proprietors. More than a thou- 



56 THE BOSTON ATHENAEUM 

sand families devoted to letters have held its shares from 
generation to generation, keeping the ranks complete — 
an achievement that Bostonians may view with pride. 

Its policy has been progressive, but, as far as possible, 
without the spirit of unrest which sometimes charac- 
terizes the introduction of new library methods. The 
best books for children now are purchased, and stand 
together upon the shelves. Music scores by the great 
composers may be taken out by Proprietors, although in 
the earlier days only biographies of musicians and essays 
on music were purchased. 

The gift of a printing fund has afforded an oppor- 
tunity to begin a series of volumes, bibliographical and 
historical, based upon the manuscripts and books owned 
by the Library. This series will, it is hoped, extend the 
usefulness and influence of the Athenaeum, and will be 
the means of suggesting to Proprietors and others its 
value as a depository of manuscripts and books. 

Through all its various changes, the Athenaeum 
has represented what was best in Boston. The " golden 
age" of New England literature grew with it and even 
within its walls. Its traditions are a part of its life, and 
are passed on from father to son. Because its ideals 
have been high the Athenaeum has appealed to men who 
lead as well as to those who follow. And with their 
continued support success in the future seems assured.

SPECIAL COLLECTIONS IN THE 
ATHENiEUM 

Every large library is expected to have the writings of 
famous men and works of general interest in the vari- 
ous departments of learning. But in the accumulation 
of books through successive generations a library be- 
comes conspicuous for growth in certain directions. 
Special collections may be acquired by gift or by pur- 
chases systematically carried on for several years. The 
Athenseum has several of these collections which will 
be noticed briefly for the benefit of students. 

Washingtoniana 

From 1848 to 1855 subscriptions were gathered 
in Boston for the purchase of part of the library of 
George Washington, then owned by Henry Stevens 
of London. Many of the volumes thus acquired bear 
the armorial book-plate of Washington and his au- 
tograph ; they relate chiefly to agriculture and military 
science. Three hundred and eighty-four volumes 
belonged to the President, and others came from 
the library of Bushrod Washington. A large coUec- 



6o THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

tion of volumes and pamphlets relating to General 
Washington has been added in recent years, so that 
the student will now find practically everything of 
importance. With the aid of one thousand dollars 
from the executors of Thomas Dowse the Athenaeum 
was able to issue a very complete catalogue of the col- 
lection, with exhaustive notes by Mr. A. P. C. Griffin, 
the present Chief Bibliographer of the Library of Con- 
gress, and a scholarly study of Washington's library as 
recorded in the inventory of his estate prepared by Mr. 
William C. Lane, now Librarian of Harvard Univer- 
sity. An excellent Index has been prepared by Mr. 
Franklin O. Poole. 

Byroniana 

The collection of works of the poet Byron was 
bought from Mr. J. W. Bouton in 1885. It num- 
bered two hundred and six volumes and forty-six pam- 
phlets, many of them first editions. In the course of 
fifteen years other volumes were added, so that the 
collection, while not complete, is representative. 

Fine Arts 

Among the valuable paintings retained in the build- 
ing, the larger part of the collection being deposited in 
the Museum of Fine Arts, are four by Stuart, three 
by Harding, and others by Neagle, Marshall and All- 
ston. There are many rare pieces of early American 
sculpture by Powers, Greenough, Frazee, and Crawford. 



SPECIAL COLLECTIONS 6i 

In 1859 Mr. Thomas Dowse, seeing the need in 
Boston of reproductions of famous paintings by old 
masters in European galleries, sent an artist abroad, and 
he made studies in water-color of fifty-two paintings. 
These came to the Athenaeum in 1859. 

A complete set of the Arundel chromolithographs 
may be seen in the building ; many have been framed. 

The best reproductions without color now comprise 
over ten thousand large carbon photographs, arranged 
in portfolios under the names of artists. This great 
collection has been brought together during a long 
period of years, the Fine Arts Committee having given 
careful attention to the selection of subjects. There 
are also in the Art Room thousands of pictures rep- 
resenting sculpture and architecture, both classic and 
modern ; and a large collection of books on art 

Views of Old Houses 

The Thwing collection, 5600 views of old houses, 
has both an antiquarian and an architectural interest. 
Miss Thwing in 1903 presented a large number of pic- 
tures of houses and early views of towns. To this 
collection have been added the wood engravings from 
Gleason's and Ballou's Pictorial and from many other 
works which could be had in duplicate for a trifling 
sum. In 1907 two hundred photographs of Boston 
streets and buildings, taken between 1850 and 1870, 
were purchased from Mr. A. H. Rickards. 



62 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

Confederate Literature 

Mr. William F. Poole began many years ago to col- 
lect books and newspapers published in the Southern 
States during the Civil War to illustrate the social life 
and economic conditions of that period. This collec- 
tion has been called by Professor Ernst von Halle, an 
authority on the subject, the largest of its kind in the 
world. It includes medical and military works, school 
books, time-tables, novels with covers made of wall- 
paper, and good files of periodicals. 

First Editions of American Authors 

Recent interest in the works of our chief New 
England authors — Emerson, Hawthorne, Holmes, 
Longfellow, Lowell, Thoreau, Whittier — has called 
attention to the value of these writings as they first 
came from the press, and before revision by their 
authors in maturer life. It seemed best to withdraw 
these volumes from general circulation ; it was then 
found that the Athenaeum possessed an unusual col- 
lection. The titles wanting have been added from 
time to time, and a carefully prepared catalogue may be 
issued in the near future. 

Early Boston Newspapers 

The Athenaeum has been able to preserve in remark- 
ably good condition its files of early Boston newspapers. 
In 1903 Miss Ayer prepared a Check- list cover- 



SPECIAL COLLECTIONS 63 

ing the period from 1690 to 1780. This list shows 
every copy of every Boston paper issued during these 
years now to be found in a dozen of the leading 
libraries of the United States. The list, with an 
historical introduction by Mr. Albert Matthews, a 
Trustee, is now in press, and will appear as one of the 
publications of the Colonial Society of Massachusetts. 

The King's Chapel Collection 

The library given to King's Chapel in Boston by 
William III. in 1698 has been in the custody of the 
Boston Athenaeum since 1823. It is the oldest col- 
lection of books in New England, and it illustrates 
very clearly the literature enjoyed by a scholarly man 
during the first century of life in the English colonies. 

Early United States Documents 

The Athenaeum has possessed for many years one 
of the best sets of early American Documents, based 
in part upon the collections of John Adams and John 
Quincy Adams. Following General A. W. Greely's 
check-list of Public documents of the first fourteen Con- 
gresses, 1789-18 17, our documents were rearranged and 
carefully catalogued. By exchange with the War De- 
partment and the Library of Congress many documents 
were added, so that our representation of the first four- 
teen Congresses is worthy of special mention. 



64 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

International Law 

In 1879 ^^' George Bemis, a Proprietor, bequeathed 
twenty thousand dollars, one half of the income for the 
purchase of books, particularly works relating to inter- 
national law. The collection now includes complete 
sets of the state papers of the chief countries of the 
world, with series of treaties, and many monographs 
and memoirs relating to subjects in International Law. 
It is supposed to be the best collection in America 
outside of Washington. Constant aid in the selection 
of books has been given by Professors A. Lawrence 
Lowell of Harvard and George G. Wilson of Brown 
University. 

Gypsy Literature 

In May, 1901, it was announced that the trustees 
of the estate of Mr. Francis Hindes Groome, of Edin- 
burgh, offered for sale his library of books, letters, 
and manuscripts bearing upon the study of the Gypsies. 
Mr. Groome has long been known as a writer for the 
leading encyclopaedias and biographical dictionaries, as 
well as the foremost authority in England, if not in the 
world, on Gypsy lore. The sum required to purchase 
this collection was subscribed by four proprietors of 
the Athenaeum, Charles Pickering Bowditch, Thornton 
Kirkland Lothrop, Albert Matthews, Henry Francis 
Sears, and in October the collection was received. It 
comprises over one hundred volumes. Some of these 



SPECIAL COLLECTIONS 65 

are rare, and others contain scarce tracts and magazine 
articles ; there are also Mr. Groome's own books with 
his marginal additions ; over thirty volumes of manu- 
script notes, lectures, etc. ; and his correspondence with 
M. Paul Bataillard, the eminent French student of the 
Gypsies, covering the years 1872 to 1880. 

Broadsides and Manuscripts. 

An account of the manuscripts in the Athenaeum 
has been given by Mr. A. P. C. Griffin in a sup- 
plement to the Librarian's Report for the year 1896. 
Since that time, however, many have been added, and 
the entire collection has been arranged and recatalogued. 
The titles will be found in the card catalogue under the 
heading " Manuscripts in the Library." The Ezekiel 
Price papers, including court, notarial, and shipping 
records, are of great antiquarian value. Aspinwall's 
Notarial Records from 1644 to 1657 have been pub- 
lished as volume thirty-two of the Boston Record 
Commissioners' Reports, and a Record of the County 
Court at Boston from 1671 to 1680 will soon be 
issued in the same series. Le Forestier's Relation and 
ToplifF's Travels have appeared recently as publications 
of the Robert Charles Billings Fund. 

The large collection of broadsides includes many 
unique or rare examples of the seventeenth and eigh- 
teenth centuries, with perhaps the best series now exist- 
ing of Fast and Thanksgiving Day Proclamations issued 
by the governors of Massachusetts. 



66 THE BOSTON ATHEN^UM 

Roxhurghe Club Publications 

The very limited editions of the Roxburghe Club 
publications have made it difficult to obtain a complete 
set of these works. The volumes now on our shelves, 
with a few to be added, will make the series complete. 
The subjects treated have a wide range, including art, 
history, literature, biography, and archaeology. 

Dreyfus Affair 

" L'affaire Dreyfus " promised to throw so much 
light upon military, legal, and social conditions in 
France that practically every volume published there 
has been acquired. In the collection are also many 
volumes issued in England and the United States, 
with some from almost every country in Europe. 

Dutch History 

In the year 1900 a Dutch bookseller's advantageous 
terms were accepted for a carefully selected collection 
of over a thousand volumes illustrating the history of 
the Netherlands and Dutch colonization. In this col- 
lection there are five contemporary pamphlets by and 
relating to Sir George Downing, a graduate in the first 
class at Harvard, 1642, and a representative of Crom- 
well and Charles I. in the Netherlands.

At a meeting of gentlemen held in the Academy's Room in 1 8a6, 
Israel Thorndike, Jr, Amos Lawrence, John A. Lowell, George B. 
Emerson, John C. Gray, John Lowell, Jr, Wm Sturgis, Daniel 
Treadwell, Dr E. Hale and Edward Brooks were appointed a com- 
mittee to solicit subscriptions for a Scientific Library. Soon after, 
the Athenaeum Trustees chose a committee composed of Nathaniel 
Bowditch, Francis C. Gray, George Ticknor, Thomas W. Ward 
and Francis J. Oliver to consider the expediency of "uniting, in the 
Athenaeum, the principal circulating libraries of this city" that the 
deficiencies of the larger library might be overcome. The Medical 
Library property and the subscriptions for the projected Scientific 
Library were soon made over to the Athenaeum. See Quincy's 
History, page 94.

On May 9th, 1831, Joseph May called the attention of the 
Trustees to Mrs. Stuart's desire to remove to Newport, and her 
proposition, made some months earlier, to sell "the original portraits 
of Washington & his Lady . . . , painted at Philadelphia in 1796." 
A committee composed of T. H. Perkins and George Ticknor 
"easily" raised ^1,500.00, and the portraits were purchased from 
Miss Jane Stuart, the legal owner, Mrs. Stuart at the same time sur- 
rendering "any right she might be supposed to possess." 

From a copy in the Trustees' Records. Mrs. Stuart appears to 
have lost the original list.
