In many ways, James Logan was the most important & most influential public figure in the province of Pennsylvania during the first half of the 18th cent. In 1699 William Penn had asked Logan, a Scotch Quaker cloth merchant born in Dublin, to accompany him to Pennsylvania as his secretary. Logan spent his career as appointed & elected official, judge, agent of the Penn family, land speculator, trader & negotiator with the Indians, & merchant. When he left Ireland he also left his book collection, & with no other book resources available to him, he avidly began to collect another.
