PREFACE. 

In 1822, John Adams, then in his eighty-seventh 
year, presented the Town of Quincy, Massachusetts, 
with (to use the wording of the deed)': "the frag- 
ments of my Library, which still remain in my pos- 
session, excepting a few that I shall reserve for my 
consolation in the few days that remain to me." 
Upon this gift he imposed several conditions, the 
first being that a catalogue of the books be made 
and printed. This catalogue was prepared and 
issued under the title: "Deeds and other documents 
relating to the several pieces of land, and to the Li- 
brary presented to the town of Quincy by President 
Adams, together with a catalogue of the books" 
(Cambridge, 1823). As a present means of refer- 
ence this catalogue is wholly useless, since the 
titles are arranged neither alphabetically under the 
author's names nor under the subject of which they 
treat, but according to the languages in which the 
books are printed, and to some extent according 
to the sizes of volumes. 

Another condition of deed was that "none of the 
books shall ever be sold, exchanged or lent, or suf- 
fered to be removed from the apartment, without a 
solemn vote of a majority of the superintendents." 
Unfortunately this condition has not been complied 
with, for a comparison of this first catalogue with 
the present will show that some volumes are mis- 
sing. One loss in particular, Thomas Morton's 
New English Canaan, is a severe one. For this 
rare volume there has been substituted a copy of 
the late Charles Francis Adams, Jr.'s edition of 
Morton's book made for the Prince Society. 
Besides the books lost or stolen, many have 

[v] 



THE ADAMS LIBRARY 



been mutilated, in part by hard usage from frequent 
removals, rot, and lack of proper care, but mostly 
at the hands of autograph collectors, who, in many 
cases, have not hesitated to cut or tear the top or 
even the middle of title-pages. 

It was the wish of John Adams that the Library 
should be placed in "an apartment of the building 
to be hereafter erected for a Greek or Latin School 
or Academy," and a provision for this academy was 
made in another deed. After a number of trans- 
fers from one place to another, this Library was 
placed, in 1882, in the Thomas Crane Public Li- 
brary of Quincy. In 1883 an orderly arrangement 
and suitable card catalogue were begun under the 
direction of the late Charles Francis Adams, Jr., 
and finished in October, 1884. 

The Library remained in the custody of the 
Thomas Crane Library for nearly ten years, but 
was practically unused for it was of a character little 
calculated to interest readers in a small community. 
Recognizing that works of this sort could only be 
made serviceable when used in connection with the 
resources of a large assemblage of literature, invit- 
ing to scholars and students, the Supervisors of the 
Adams Temple and School Fund of Quincy voted, 
November 29, 1893, to transfer the Adams Collec- 
tion to the Boston Public Library. On December 
6, 1893, the Trustees of the Boston Public Library 
voted to accept this transfer. The collection now 
stands in the annex to the Children's Room. It 
has been catalogued in accordance with the system 
in use in the general library, and the cards have 
been incorporated into the Public and Official Cata- 
logues. Since it is now a working part of the 
Boston Public Library and since its contents 
are made available through the general catalogue, 

[vi]

it has not seemed necessary in the construction of 
the present catalogue to do more than to give the 
titles under the author's names. 

The value of the Library of John Adams is in part 
a sentimental one. He was one of the United 
States Commissioners to France, and Minister to 
Holland, during the American Revolution, and 
while in Paris and at The Hague collected many 
of the volumes of which he made use in writing 
his "Defence of the Constitutions of Government 
of the United States." Years later he was the 
second President of the nation. From the time 
when he was a student in Harvard College until 
the day of his death on the fiftieth anniversary of 
the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1826, he 
drew books about him. As a result his Library 
is an admirable specimen of the intellectual tastes 
of an American gentleman of the Eighteenth 
Century. Not only does it contain many of the 
Greek, Latin, French and English classics, but 
a considerable number of works on law, commerce, 
and agriculture. The books, however, on the con- 
stitutional and political history of various countries, 
among them a number of histories of the Italian 
republics, give a special significance to the collec- 
tion. With the exception of the Library of Col. 
William Byrd of Virginia, which contained 3438 
volumes, it is possibly the largest private collection 
of books of its day made in this country. 

Among other valuable and interesting works may 
be especially designated Henri Estienne's edition of 
Plato's Works in three folio volumes (Paris, 1578) 
enriched by the autographs of John and John 
Quincy Adams; Winslow's Good news from New / 
England (1624) ; John Marshall's Life of Washing- 
ton, each of the five volumes containing an auto- 

[vii] 



THE ADAMS LIBRARY 



graph presentation from the author to John Adams ; 
and Joseph Warren's Massacre oration of 1/72, an 
autographed presentation copy. 

Three of the volumes once belonged to the Rev. 
Thomas Prince, and two of them contain the book- 
plate of the Old South Library.. In the Boston 
Patriot of October 23, 1811, John Adams wrote: 
"I mounted up to the balcony of Dr. Sewall's 
church, where was assembled a collection which Mr. 
Prince had devoted himself to make from the twen- 
tieth year of his age . . . Such a treasure never 
existed anywhere else, and can never again be 
made." It seems probable that in one or more of 
his visits to this balcony Mr. Adams borrowed these 
volumes and failed to return them. 

Among the numerous autographs are those of 
James Otis, Elbridge Gerry, T. Brand Hollis, Dr. 
Benjamin Rush; as well as manuscript notes by 
Thomas Prince in Oldmixon's British Empire in 
America, and Winslow's Good news from New Eng- 
land, and numerous annotations by John Adams 
in Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin's French Revolu- 
tion, Davila's Histoire des guerres civiles, and Rous- 
seau's Discourse upon inequality. 

Many volumes contain the book-plates of John 
Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Charles Francis 
Adams, the Elder. These book-plates of the son 
and grandson of John Adams are evidence that 
they, and doubtless later members of the Adams 
family, added to the collection as it originally stood 
in 1823. At that time the number of volumes was 
2756. In 1883, the number was 2804, and at present 
in 1917, the total enumeration is 3019. 

This catalogue has been edited and put through 
the press, and the preface written, by Lindsay 
Swift, Editor of Publications.
