Join The Library Company for part two of the “Books Are My Disease” series. 

Building upon the November 15 event discussing 18th-century book storage at Stenton, Emily Guthrie and Jim Green will share highlights and stories from Logan’s collection in its present home at the Library Company. Commonly referred to as the “Loganian Library,” the collection comprised over 2,600 volumes at the time of Logan’s death in 1751. Consisting chiefly of books in Latin and Greek, the collection was among the finest in Colonial America.
