Library Co. of Phila.
Mathew Carey: Publisher and Patriot
James N. Green (au); John C. Van Horne (fr)
Catalogue of an exhibition held by the Library Co. of Phila. in 1985 to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the founding by Mathew Carey of his publishing business in Phila. Carey was the greatest publisher in America in the first two decades of the 19th cent., but as the exhibition title indicates, he was also a central figure in the politics of his time. The Historical Society of PA has in its Lea & Febiger Collection the bulk of Carey’s surviving business papers. The research for & preparation of the exhibition was carried out by James Green, the Library Company’s curator of printed books. His short biographical sketch of Carey also serves as a catalogue of the exhibition, since each of its 12 sections represents a case of books on display. Illustrations.
